The Legendary Ingramettes “How I got Over”
September 20 | 12:00 pm€10
“How I got Over”: The central importance of gospel music in the Civil Rights Movement in the USA
Join Members of the gospel group the Legendary Ingramettes and former Virginia State Folklorist and Director of the Center for Cultural Vibrancy Jon Lohman for discussion and song about the important role of Black gospel music in the attainment of civil rights in the American south. The Ingramettes were deeply involved in the generationally defining struggle, and their journey is both uniquely remarkable while also indicative of the greater struggles of many. Hailing from the musically rich region of Richmond, Virginia, the Ingramettes are icons in the gospel community and were recently honored with the 2022 National Heritage Fellowship, the highest honor that the United States bestows upon traditional artists.
