NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A documentary on black sacred music with a Tennessee connection has received an Emmy.

“Reflect, Reclaim, Rejoice: Preserving the Gift of Black Sacred Music” was recently honored in Nashville at the Midsouth Emmy Awards, which is part of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Henri Giles of Nashville is the writer, producer and director of the documentary, which was done as a project for the United Methodist Church.

She said the style of black sacred music influenced gospel music, and the intent of the documentary is to help younger generations understand its cultural significance.

Some footage of the documentary was shot in Maryland, Georgia and South Carolina. Maryland Public Television aired the documentary earlier this month.

Giles says she’s had requests to speak about the documentary.
