Everett McCorvey - JFK - American Spiritual Ensemble

Dr. Everett McCorvey talks about growing up in Alabama, how President John F. Kennedy propelled the Civil Rights Movement from a local issue to the national stage, and how the spirituals of the slaves sustained the Civil Rights Movement.

Dr. Everett McCorvey, director of the University of Kentucky’s Opera Theater program,  is performing this week with his American Spiritual Ensemble in Ireland to mark John F.
