“On Feb. 23 during Black History Month, North Central College will feature 'Deep River: A Spiritual Journey,' a live musical presentation and original narrative about African slaves who lived along the Great River before the Civil War. The free program will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, in North Central’s Koten Chapel at Kiekhofer Hall, 329 E. School St., Naperville.

“'Deep River: A Spiritual Journey' is also the title of a CD, recorded in 1999, and features soloist Henry Pleas, an accomplished tenor who’s studied and performed worldwide, pianist Chris Garofalo and the Rev. Dr. Sylvia Pleas, narrator and creator of the original story in 'Deep River.' These same artists will perform Feb. 23.”
