The Impact of Gospel Music in Black History
By Richard Cox
Through our struggles as a race, gospel music has given us strength. Its message of hope and faith in God has helped us stay focused as a people. It has allowed us to be optimistic about a brighter day and future ahead. Gospel music has always had the ability to literally move the listener and touch the soul. Whether swaying with the choirs, tapping your feet along with the quartets or simply raising your hands to the rhythms of soul-stirring songs, the music moves you. As Christians we must pray that gospel music is building bridges and not walls. There is such a demand for gospel music and singers to perform at banquets, conventions, award ceremonies, Black history programs, etc.
Let's reflect on some of the in gospel music pioneers who believed in letting the Holy Ghost have its way:
