MAYN009. Sounds of Faith. Dir. and prod. by Malinda M. Maynor. Videocassette. Department of Communication, Stanford U, 1997. 14 min. Key source
Publication type: Videotape
Through scenes of a family gathering at Thanksgiving, a pow-wow, and a church service, Maynor clearly delineates ways in which singing and music are different - but not conflicting - expressions of Christian faith for the Lumbee. The primary voices heard are hers as narrator; and two of her relatives, the Rev. Michael Cummings and his son Jody. The large Thanksgiving gathering at the home of her grandparents, Foy and Bloss Cummings, shows preparation and serving of traditional Lumbee food (collard greens, fried cornbread, fried chicken), family interaction, and family singing of gospel songs.Note: Author is Lumbee.
