Morris Baxter On Jazz In Black History, PBS Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song

Jazz 91.9 WCLK invites you to join us in watching The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song, PBS documentary series by Dr. Henry Louis Gates premiering in Atlanta PBS Tuesday, February 16 at 9pm. This powerful documentary explores the church’s powerful influence as the spiritual, cultural, and political epicenter of the African American community. WCLK's Morris 'In The Morning' Baxter, host of Morning Jazz Monday-Fridays 6a-10a, was asked to be part of a Black History Month effort for Elizabeth Baptist Church in Southwest Atlanta. "I'm proud to be a part of EBC's Black History Month Tribute To Jazz. I'm also looking forward to PBS's The Black Church--This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song and I hope you all join me in watching it and celebrating The Black Church in America. Success leaves footprints." Enjoy the YouTube link to Morris below. The version of the Jon Baptiste song I Need You at the end of this clip includes Atlanta musicians including Teja Veal and Mike Burton, among others.
