Sweet Honey in the Rock

Challenge and change are the themes underlying the 40-year career of the revered female African-American a cappella ensemble, SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK. The ever-growing list of SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK’s musical and activist achievements since its creation is beyond stunning. The ladies have performed in Nairobi and Beijing at the U.N. World Conference on Women, toured the UK, Japan, Africa, Australia and various European locations, and has been the subject of two PBS documentaries, “Gotta Make This Journey” and “SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK: Raise Your Voice.”
