A Singing Stream: A Black Family Chronicle

A Singing Stream: A Black Family Chronicle 

When: Sun., May 9, 3 p.m. 2010
Price: free

This documentary, filmed by Tom Davenport and originally released in 1986, tells the story of the Landis family of Granville County. Via interviews and story sharing, the Landises recount their history, with church and gospel music courtesy of The Golden Echoes quartet (which featured two Landis brothers) playing major roles. At the heart of the family and its documentary is octogenarian matriarch Mrs. Bertha M. Landis, making A Singing Stream perfect Mother's Day viewing. The program starts at 3 p.m., and it's free—like all of the invaluable "Music of the Carolinas" shows co-sponsored by PineCone and the Museum of History. —Rick Cornell
