On today's edition of Sound Perimeter with Lia Uribe, we hear a selection of African American spirituals performed by the University of Arkansas Inspirational Chorale directed by Dr. Jeff Murdock. Spirituals are a type of religious folksong that is most closely associated with the enslavement of African people in America.
