Since 1969, University of Louisville’s Black Diamond Choir has been a safe space for Black students, lovers of Gospel music, and those who may practice Christianity. Black students saw a need for congregating to support each other during the tumultuous 1960s, which resulted in the birth of Black Diamond Choir. Despite the transformation of Gospel music, BDC remains because of its sense of community and nurturing. Whether traveling to our nation’s capital, the Deep South or the United Kingdom, BDC uses music and fellowship to provide food for the soul.
