In celebration of Black History Month, Christ Church Cathedral is holding a concert Sunday honoring Rosa Parks. The concert will feature arrangements of spirituals and “Hymn for Rosa,” a work written by Christ Church Cathedral organist and choirmaster William “Pat” Partridge after Rosa Parks died.

According to Partridge, her death reminded him of his childhood in segregated Virginia and her perseverance to end segregation.
