Very few people would know the name Harry Burley, but he preserved the old slave songs and spirituals that he learned from his grandfather. American music would never be the same. He has been given the nickname "The Dean of the Negro Spirituals." Craig Von Buseck authored a book called "Nobody Knows" telling the story of Harry Burley, and he joins the PeaceTalk audience to tell that story.
