African American Spiritual Music Tradition, a Family Affair: Odessa Settles at TEDxNashville

We are Seven Brothers and One Sister, a family of siblings preserving and passing down the music tradition and heritage of our father -- Walter Settles - a former member of the Fairfield Four. The music tradition which has survived over 400 years was born out of the institution of slavery where there was despair and shattered dreams and continues to speak loudly of hope and wholeness in modern times.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
