Implementation of the rice pounding sounds into spiritual and secular rhythms changed the pulse of Charleston and the world. The featured images in this exhibition illustrate the brilliant hopes of the freed African, the sounds of those pounding rice and creating what one can only imagine as the root sounds of gospel and jazz music in America. Observe the images on display, and imagine the rhythms and vocals as the rice was pounded, celebrating freedom, self-sustenance, and the new spirit in the life of the community.
