Freedom Singers

Profile:
Freedom Singers is an American vocal group from Albany, Georgia, founded in 1962 by Cordell Reagon, a field secretary of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC).

The original line-up consisted of Reagon (bass vocals), Bernice Johnson Reagon (alto vocals), Rutha Harris (soprano vocals) and Charles Neblett (tenor vocals).

The group was disbanded after a tour and recording an album in 1963, though it has been reformed since. Currently the group performs once a month at the Albany Civil Rights Institute, led by one of the original members, Rutha Harris. In February 2010, the group performed in the White House in an event organized in honor of Black History Month. In addition to Harris, Bernice Johnson Reagon, Charles Neblett and Toshi Reagon joined the group for the performance.
