    Rhiannon Giddens: "Black Is the Color"

    "We all had such a great time filming this video," says Rhiannon Giddens of this video, directed by Peter Zavadil, for "Black Is the Color," off her 2015 debut solo album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. "We were so honored to set our story—an old love story rediscovered—on the campus of Fisk University, a Nashville HBCU that dates back to 1866. The Fisk Jubilee Singers were among the first African-American performance groups to tour America and Europe, and they single-handedly kept their school from closing its doors with the money they raised with their singing."
