“Motherless Child”

Last summer we followed Pastor Patrinell Wright to New Orleans where she met with high school students who were rebuilding homes as Shirts Across America volunteers. We had the privilege of filming her heartbreaking performance of several Negro spirituals at the Whitney Plantation slavery museum. This song really spoke to us. Pastor Pat was in the old church singing to the “Children of Whitney” ceramic sculptures by Woodrow Nash.
