Were you There?

On this Good Friday, I share very different versions of the song, “Were you There?” The African American Spiritual is attributed to a few different people, but it has been around much longer than when it was first published in 1899. Only God knows….

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.

One thought on “Were you There?

  1. Thank you for these renditions. I look forward to listening to them all. It gave me a Holy chill to see this title. I had heard this song earlier in life but had forgotten it. I am reading ” The Robe” for Lent. Douglas’s character, Marcus Gallup, a Roman Centurion asks this question throughout the novel.
