University of Wisconsin-Madison

Professor Craig Werner

"When you listen to Mary Williams, you're hearing the voice of a great singer, but you're also hearing the voices of the elders and the ancestors who signed their names in blood."

Duke University

Professor Timothy B. Tyson

"Her power as a singer comes from her heart and from her faith in the God who drowned Pharaoh's army and still seeks to let his people go; her faith in the blood that has signed all of our names."
