It is 1993. Sweet Honey celebrate twenty years of passionate existence, yet it is just a beginning. Bernice Johnson Reagon says, "this group is a part of my living - not spare time, not what I do for a living, not a job, not a hobby - but the way I breathe, the how I make my way through my life and the life of my times." In light of this, the first song, "Spiritual," comes into startling clarity when we hear the oft repeated line, "Can't no one know at sunrise - How this day is going to end." A grand rap tribute to the history of the group celebrates the twenty years and twenty-one women who have been participants on the journey of struggle and joy which is Sweet Honey In The Rock. More than ever before, the rhythm and rhyme of this maturing institution is richly presented. Just listen to Wodaabe Nights and hear a great musical transposition from Africa to America.
