How I Got Over: The Spirit of Gospel Music
Friday, April 10 at 3pm EST
Lift your spirits with this special rebroadcast of Apollo Live Wire's conversation exploring the history and influence of Gospel music and the Black religious experience. Judith Casselberry, associate professor of Africana Studies at Bowdoin College and author of The Labor of Faith: Gender and Power in Black Apostolic Pentecostalism, guides us through this journey that begins in the early 20th century and winds across the decades through the migration experience, regional influences, denominational traditions, and innovative performers to today’s contemporary Gospel music scene.
