Film Screening: “I’m So Glad: Kansas City and the Roots of Black Gospel Music”

8/20 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

Join us at the Watkins for this free screening, a partnership with the I’m So Glad Project and the Lawrence Branch NAACP. From its pre-Civil War roots to today, Kansas City’s unique style of gospel music has influenced every other genre of American music. And it has sustained the people with its positive message: “I’m So Glad, Trouble Don’t Last Always.” This screening is part of Civil War on the Border.

Before the screening we’ll have a duet by LaToya Fleming-Garrett and Ashl√© Fleming of St. Luke AME Church.

The I’m So Glad Project is a film and series of events focused on gospel music that are being created to preserve, promote, and celebrate this amazing music and the people who make it.
