Sing Out for Freedom

The Freedom Singers were one of the best known of the singing groups that traveled the U.S. in the 1950s and '60s spreading the civil rights message. This 1993 KET production includes performances from a concert in Louisville and interview segments in which the singers talk about their experiences in the civil rights movement. Russellville resident Charles Neblett, a founding member and the group's manager, was also the first African American elected magistrate in Logan County.
