Speaker: Mary Dobbin Williams
Gospel Singer, Historian, and Educator
Combining song and message, the learning opportunity in this presentation lies in Mary D. Williams’ powerful voice as she leads participants to the day when songs of hope wafted across our southern landscape. Born in Garner NC, in Wake County, and having performed at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Mary will share her thoughts on the power of voice during the days of slavery and more recently during the fight for civil rights. Important to our family histories and tempered by each season of the lives we live, the way and reasons we raise our voices in song offer an important narrative of who we are as a people, as family.
Virtual and free with registration beginning shortly after the January meeting.
