Necessary Blackness Ep: 131 The Curse of Gospel

You need to add a widget, row, or prebuilt layout before you’ll see anything here. 🙂

Necessary Blackness got a chance to sit down with Crumb of CrumbTV to discuss the origin of Negro Spirituals and how the Gospel (God-Spell), which is traditionally rooted in the church will alienate a musician once they start singing secular music. Crumb goes deep into the lives of Sam Cooke, who shook the gospel world to its roots and how his tragic death could be related to his secular music career. Ray Charles, Bobby Womack, Marvin Gaye and others are discussed in this deep and informative podcast.
