    In honor of Black History Month, THECREATIVEUNDERGROUND along with Bessie Smith Cultural Center will present a live dramatic/musical performance of African American literary classic, God’s Trombones.

    God’s Trombones, a collection of poems that refigure inspirational sermons by itinerant southern black preachers, was published in 1927 by one of the nation’s most prolific African American figures in the areas of law, education, music and literature, James Weldon Johnson.

    God’s Trombones will feature the following distinguished community leaders and advocates together, for this one time performance, to give their renditions to the stirring passages; Anthony O. Sammons , Pastor Sheryl Randolph , Pastor Kevin Smith, Yolanda Mitchell, Lawrence Sneed, Pastor Ernest Tanner, Pastor Jeffrey Wilson and Sam Terry.

    This one night only performances promises to bathe the Bessie Smith Performance hall in a spiritual light, filling it with joyful gospel music, impassioned sermons and spirited outbursts from all that attend!
