Editorial Reviews

A stunning, award-winning performance documentary with internationally acclaimed artists tells the Hyers’ story in word and song with a hip-hop narrator who interprets its meaning for our day.

In the perilous 1870’s and 80’s, when night riders and lynching terrorized black people and blackface minstrels ridiculed them across the land, The Hyers Sisters (popular, black, touring-opera prodigies) stood up to become Voices for Freedom. They fought the minstrels’ ridicule with charming musical works that revealed the depth and dignity of African Americans. These became the first American musicals and the first works to use spirituals and integrated casting in American Music theater.

This half-hour performance documentary celebrates the Hyers' rich legacy in word and song with internationally renowned artists. Enactment, narration, a hip-hop narrator, and expert commentary help reveal the social struggles of their day and shed light upon our own. Super star of opera, musicals, and television Denyce Graves-Montgomery hosts.
