The Gospel Highway

The Gospel Highway chronicled the brave and inspiring "musical ministry" of the African American vocal groups who criss-crossed the country, mostly in the Deep South, during the most violent decades of "legal" racial segregation, commonly known as the Jim Crow era. Starting with the Fisk University Jubilee Singers in the 1870s and ending with the triumph of Aretha Franklin's gospel masterpiece, Amazing Grace, which was released in 1972, the Gospel Highway traveled through a century of black artists singing sacred songs.
