Negro Spirituals

Negro spirituals are a staple in the black community. They are poly rhythmic and tend to reference religion. A prominent negro spiritual artist was Marian Anderson. She used music as a conduit for her activism. Early Negro Spirituals were not written down by slaves. They were stolen by Caucasians and written in a book called the first one hundred slave songs. One endless example of the exploitation that blacks faced in the united states.
