American Black Gospel Music: Its Roots and Its Religious and Secular Characteristics

by Min Wang  
Afro-American gospel music has its own cultural underpinning and musical characteristics. Afro-American gospel music derived from the gospel hymnody and spirituals sung by African Americans in the South in camp meetings in the early 19th century. The musical style of Afro-American gospel music developed in this specific environment was distinguished from that of white gospel music. With the rise of urban industry in the 1920s, Afro-American gospel music was brought to cities when thousands of southern blacks rushed to cities to look for jobs. Intermingled with the rich urban cultural elements in American cities, Afro-American gospel music developed into its contemporary form of two highly charged styles of singing, sacred gospel and secular gospel. Each of the two styles has been an integrated part of religious and entertaining music art since the 1950s.
