Description
Jackson shows how over the 20th century, as black gospel music achieved recognition outside of the church, many African Americans worried that the music was losing its sacred moorings. This tension played out in the lives and careers of the great artists of the period, like Thomas Dorsey and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, whose roles in the evolution of black gospel music are examined here.
