    This was so Good! Our guide was passionate about her subject, and infused in to all of us. So interesting hearing the influence of the slaves on music, despite their obvious limitations. The Brooklyn service was wonderful. Great music, great people so well organized, and great message. A highlight of our trip to New York.

    We decided not to go on this tour. After we had paid, and received further information, we found we were to meet downtown NYC, then take a train to Brooklyn, and then spend 2 hours at a Church Service which we would not be able to leave easily. C'est la vie! But the advertising did not indicate the true nature of the event .
