In Honor of Dr. King

Jester Hairston was one of the greatest choral arrangers in the twentieth century.  Hairston spent decades writing down the sounds of the African spirituals before they were lost to time and history.  He broke down many racial divides simply through the joy of music and his Christian faith.  This is one of the few videos of him conducting a choir–a white European choir.  This was Doctor King’s dream, us living and working together.
