Following our Freedom Walk special tour of Portland’s Underground Railroad we invite you to join Reverend Kenneth I. Lewis, Pastor of Green Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church as speaks about The Gospel in Gospel Music. His pre-performance lecture explores the history behind the religious and spiritual messages gospel puts forward, and takes us from an understanding of the codes within well-known songs such as “Wade in the Water” and “Swing Low Sweet Chariot” to the ways gospel has continued to evolve, incorporating hip hop, jazz, and other musical styles to become a Pan-African sound.
The lecture takes place at Green Memorial A.M.E. Z. Church.
