This is a singing group called folio de reis in one of my favorite spaces in this city, a very small church in the community that was formed many years ago by a group of fugitive slaves. I am working on a short documentary about this group with my research assistant. Yesterday a woman who sings with them came up to me and thanked me. She said that the DVD I made of the first cut circulated to almost every house in the neighborhood. I thought, wow, I didnt know that so many people had DVD players.
