One of Atlanta's historically black colleges is highlighting historical, black music. Morehouse College will host "How Sweet the Sound: 2nd Ecumenical Celebration of Music in the Black Church" on Friday, Sept. 9, and Saturday, Sept. 10.

  It's partly a conference -- with workshops to help musicians brush up on their skills. It's also part celebration -- since it seeks to connect attendees with the legacy of African-American Christian music.

WABE's Amy Kiley spoke with Dr. Uzee Brown. He's chair of Morehouse's Department of Music and one of the organizers behind the event.
