Negro Spirituals

By Kamiya Watkins

Negro Spirituals is  not only a vocal genre, but it is also involves choirs and instruments. This genre dates back all the way from 1865 until today. This songs were composed by slaves from Africa who whom were brought to America against their will and summoned to be enslaved. Their family, language, and culture was stripped from them by Americans where taught that they were worth nothing more than just to serve the white man. The songs that these slaves sung were reflecting the hardships that they endured and hoped for freedom one day. The Negro Spirituals that slaves sung were not written down and white people came and made money off of their songs taking all of the created. Why would anyone believe that a white person would really create these kind of songs as if they went through turmoil?
