In this performance/presentation, an open session of the course "The Arts of Building Peace" at Brandeis University, musician, artist, and cultural worker Jane Sapp discussed the conditions that gave rise to the need for resilience in the African-American community, including slavery and life under the Jim Crow regime of segregation, and the sources of resilience in the African American family, community, and church. Songs illustrated the power of culture to validate people’s experience and nourish their capacity to maintain a sense of dignity in the face of forces determined to humiliate them.
