St. James’ Sunday Bible Study Lectures
May 26 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm
Revelation in African American Culture
Sunday May 26 2019 12:15pm. to 1:30pm.
In the last lecture, we saw how images from Revelation took musical form in Europe and North America. We will continue our musical exploration in this lecture, but we will focus more specifically on African American culture. As we’ve seen, music has given the language and imagery of Revelation some of its most enduring forms, and the reverse is also true. As we look at the songs the Apocalypse has inspired, we may discover possibilities in the book that we might never have discerned otherwise. Musicians, certainly those in the African American tradition, have proven to be some of the book’s most creative and engaging interpreters.
