Vocal cries, slave songs, spirituals, sung in the fields as CODE songs, incorporating stories of the Bible to inspire freedom and to create an underground system of communication about clandestine meetings and opportunities to get away and achieve liberation, thus fueling a movement and a lasting body of vital African American artwork that lives on to this day "like a hand on the plow taking one further into the promised land."

The music of (((CODES))), presented by Joshua White, takes the inspiration of these slave CODES and celebrates their spirit through the music of gospel, jazz and spoken word, further fused and elaborated upon through the works of Audre Lorde, Langston Hughes, Amiri Baraka, and other major African-American poets, all of this performed by an all-star band.
