Description

In 1871, the five year old university was facing serious financial difficulty. In order to save the university from ruin, the Fisk Jubilee singers went on tour to raise money. Not only did they save the school but this tour started the departure from the black minstrel genre of white musicians performing in Black face. It’s because of the Fisk Jubilee Singers that Nashville is called the Music City. (This painting is an homage to Edmund Havel’s Fisk Jubilee Singers).
