When Hell Freezes Over, I'll Skate (1979, TV Movie)


This lively, spirit-lifting musical celebrates the sheer joy and survival of black music, song, and poetry since the days of America's Civil War. With utter grace and ease, the gifted eight-member singing ensemble glides from gospel to disco and from slave quarter sermons to contemporary black poetry.
