Album Notes
This 35-minute musical lecture traces the footprints of history as it relates to the wonderful gift of Afro-American music that has come out of an American tragedy.

Barbara's storytelling is interesting, clear and very informative and the music inserts are accentuated superbly by Michael Pickett and Keith Eason.

Ms. Tucker has performed this history in conjunction with Children's Spirituals Concerts in the Houston Area and at TMEA. She is available to perform this lecture and expanded versions of it live, with her choir or a small ensemble.

An excellent educational tool!!!
A "must-have" for every library!!!


"Barbara Tucker has the voice of an angel. Her work with children and music is absolutely magical. Not only do both her singing and speaking voice command attention from all ages, but what she is able to bring out of the music truly becomes an enchanting experience you and your children will never forget. If you can't have Barbara sing and perform with your children, this marvelous DVD is the next best thing."
Ann Hastings past TMEA Elementary Division Vice-President
The Kinkaid School and formerly Roth Elementary, Klein ISD
"A Historical Glimpse of the Evolution of African-American Music is a much needed addition to music libraries in general, across the world. Expertly and passionately narrated by Barbara J. Tucker, it gives a mesmerizing account of the contributions made by African-Americans to the musical heritage of our country."
Ina Zellers, Music Co-Ordinator, Project Grad HISD
"There is a very compelling introduction to this Musical Glimpse, with an eye to the future. As Ms. Tucker's voice enters the scene, the listener becomes gifted. Not only is her singing voice a treat, her speaking of the evolving genres is very clearand expertly dramatic."
Izola Collins, Galveston ISD Ret.

This was truly and outstand performance and beneficial to the students
I had Ms. Tucker to come our school and do this same performance and she did an outstanding job. She went back from the beginning to were the music is today. I would recomend the cd and Ms. Tucker.

Great job
