Go Tell It On The Mountain - Airs Dec. 21

"Go Tell It on the Mountain" was born in the rich and indomitable oral culture of African slaves in the American south. A hundred years later it became a rallying cry for the civil rights struggle of the 1960's. And now, it's a perennial favourite at Christmas concerts and church services across North America.

We'll air a documentary on this holiday spiritual, produced by the CBC. Listen in at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 21.
