The rich and soulful sounds from the "Golden Age of Gospel" are distinctly African American. They are the voices of men and women who loved to sing and raise their voices in praise. This fertile musical time period in American history is a cultural snapshot revealing the depth of a people, their community, and the influence they have had on the rest of American music. Baylor University presents the Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, an effort to preserve this valuable history and culture and celebrate the vibrant music of this era between 1945 and 1975.
