St. Hilda’s & St. Hugh’s annual Gospel Celebration honored the legacy of the Harlem Renaissance as seen through the experiences of the Harlem Hellfighters Regimental Band, the first all African-American military regiment from World War I. The celebration includes songs that tell of the journey that many have taken in search of equal, civil rights. 

The morning featured special performances from students in first through third grades and the upper division Chorus, Brass Band, Instrumental Ensemble, as well as a special performance from the fourth grade performing arts classes.
