What school?
Despite our communication technology, no invention is as effective as the sound of the human voice.

Here's a couple more songs:

1. King Jesus Is A Listen (When you pray)
2. Ain't Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Round

I hope that your program is a success.


Be Blessed
But I trusted in thee, O LORD; I said, thou art my GOD...Psalms 31:14

Remember, it's about ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  God has just presented you with a situation with which to to that.  It may be BHM to them, but it is ministering through song to you.  Don't just fall into the typical "It's Black History Month---let's let the negro children sing some spirituals" trap.  These are people that God wants to reach.  Seek the Lord as to how he wants to use you to minister in this situation and I am positive that He will reveal to you what material to present.

- "Lift Every Voice and Sing"

You could choose to spirituals and if you'd like, you can do updated spirituals, here's a few that come to mind:

- "Rock Of Ages" (TM Mass Youth Choir)
- "Old Ship Of Zion" (Jesus Gang)
- "Get Away Jordan" (TM Mass Youth Choir)

Also you can use songs that speak of encouragement and empowerment, for example:

- "We Shall Overcome" (Bishop Paul Morton & The Greater St. Stephen Mass Choir )
- "We Made It" (Hezekiah Walker & The Lover Fellowship Crusade Choir)
