From 1938 to 1947, the Cleveland, OH-based Wings Over Jordan Choir thrilled millions of Americans at home and overseas with their renditions of Negro Spirituals, music that spoke to the Earth and to the Heavens.

 The groundbreaking choir opened new avenues for African Americans on the CBS Radio Network and in the entertainment industry. With its live and recorded performances, was on the cutting edge of the 1930s civil rights movement that provided a foundation for later civil rights activities in the United States.
