The Sacred Nine Project

The Sacred Nine Project: Cora L, Imposter

This will be a classical lecture recital of nineteeth century parlour songs, rally songs, minstrel songs, gospel songs, rescue mission songs, and hymns.

Our Cora L is the most famous poet you’ve never heard of. Come hear beautiful music that is a vehicle our poet. At the same time, let’s consider, in our world of “cancel culture,” what legacy she has (or deserves to have).

There was a woman, Cora L,
A Christian and a poet.
Most thought she’s bound for Sainthood. Well,
Methings she fell below it.

‘Tis true, she helped the poor and sick
And those beneath her station.
To thank her, though, you’d have to pick
From many a appelation.

In ages past she labored long
For slav’ry’s abolition,
But also penned the Minstrel Song:
What callous, cruel ambition!

So is our writer friend or foe?
Truth-teller or a liar?
Come January fifth you’ll know
For we will all enquire.
