Toni Anderson, chair of the music department at LaGrange College, has written a book "Tell Them We Are Singing for Jesus: The Original Fisk Jubliee Singers and Christian Reconstruction, 1871-1878."
She first learned about the Fisk Jubliee Singers when she taught at Morris Brown College in Atlanta, a historically black institution.
The singers were the topic of her doctoral dissertation 15 years ago at Georgia State University.
The singers were a nine-member choral ensemble which performed in this country and Europe to raise money for the Fisk University.
