Clayton State Black History Month to Feature “Gospel Explosion,” Feb. 24

Gospel music is an important part of African American history and culture, serving as a means of expression, communication, inspiration, and spiritual encouragement. This genre of music was first introduced in African American churches in the early 20th century. Since then, gospel music has remained the backbone of African American churchgoers.

On Sunday, Feb. 24 at 5 p.m., the Clayton State University Black History Month Committee will introduce a little gospel in the University’s world-famous Spivey Hall. The “Gospel Explosion” will feature local choirs and artists from the surrounding Atlanta area. The public is invited and admission is free.
