Professor Claudrena Harold was recently featured in the PBS docuseries Gospel, the latest history series from Henry Louis Gates, Jr., that digs deep into the origin story of Black spirituality through sermon and song. Episode subjects include: The Gospel Train (the sonic influences of blues and jazz), The Golden Age Of Gospel (from the Lord’s music to the mainstream), Take The Message Everywhere (gospel goes mainstream, taking the good news everywhere), and Gospel's Second Century (gospel and preaching achieve platinum-selling success). The series first aired on February 11 and 12 but is available online.
