Richard Smallwood performs again at DNC Thursday

Richard Smallwood, who performed earlier this week at the DNC interfaith service, will once again take centerstage when he performs Thursday morning at the Unity Prayer breakfast in Denver.

Smallwood said earler this week he didn't know exactly what the songs would be but that it would be a medley of some familiar spirituals that reflect the time. "We Shall Overcome" is just one of the many spirituals that during the Civil Rights movement, was sung at most gatherings.
