Cornerstones | The Hymnist

Special | 2m 40s | Video has closed captioning.

The Hymnist sang praises to celebrate the salvation of the soul and to save the body from slavery. In this short animated series, Cornerstones: Found Voices of the Black Church, we look at just a few pivotal people who brought the reality of the right to gather, read, sing, worship and share these truths that should have always been self-evident.
