Empathy/ Healing for a Great Nationperfect for Blac
Have you ever wondered 'What was it like to have been a slave in America? What did they think? What did they think about God and how did they come to know Him?' Perhaps there is no way to know exactly how they felt,however, we can get at least a 'bird's eye' view by pausing and examining our own feelings and walking in their footstps through, EMPATHY. Not feeling sorry for them or turning our feelings into some kind of emotional mush, but putting ourselves in their place and feeling what they felt. EMPATHY/HEALING FOR A GREAT NATION was sung live in it's premiere performance at Marygrove College by Koardland Simmons and Raymond J. Myers II, both tenors with the Michigan Opera Theatre. Now on CD they help you to discover the slaves' feelings of camaraderie and loneliness, hope and hopelessness, daring and despair, fear and courage and yes, joy and humor. Their powerful interpretation of these new and insightful songs by Richard E. Webster, transport us back in time to a tragic period in American History from which this great nation has not yet fully recovered.
