Abstract

Uzee Brown, Professor and Chair of the Morehouse College Department of Music, talks about growing up in the Piedmont region of South Carolina. Once he came to Morehouse, Prof. Wendell P. Whalum encouraged him to pursue research on the oral traditions of South Carolina and he saw the folk music he grew up with in a new light. This has culminated in a collection of rare spirituals which he has arranged and recorded with his choir, the Uzee Brown Society of Choraliers.
