Visits to this page

   

Below, right, and left are links that will enrich your knowledge of the past and present selfless contributions made by just a FEW of our MANY great African Americans. As you read the wealth of information on the pages, think about how our world would be today without the selfless contributions and what we have learned from the good and the bad. Also, recognize the unbending focus and intensity of their efforts despite repeated rejections and unfulfilled expectations.

   
 

We must continue to remember and respect our heritage (even though one might not agree with the actions of some--it is still history) by never saying good-bye to yesterday, for we are still standing on their shoulders—yesterday made our present possible.  Appreciate OUR Past . . .

To define music at its best, Plato stated that, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, gaiety and life to everything; It is the essence of order and lends to all that is good, just, and beautiful.” Moreover, Thomas Carlyle stated that, “Music is well said to be the speech of angels; in fact, nothing among utterances allowed to man is felt to be so divine. It brings us near the infinite.” The above quotes should always remind you of the beautiful Whitney Elizabeth Houston (Whitney). Whitney was a recording artist, actress, producer, and model. Her singing talents earned her the title of “The Most-Awarded Female Act of All Time”. Her Godsend talents gave us feelings in our hearts and souls, and her gospel lead us closer to God. She will always be remembered as the “Golden Voice” of our time. After Whitney sang the song--there were no other versions that could top her voice.

A Salute To Black Gospel

   
   

   

hands

A Sample Of African American Gospel Videos/Recordings

   
   

Black GOSPEL is a one of the greatest vehicles through which praise and worship, that is ascribed to God, is carried.  When a GOSPEL is heard, the words encourage you to look on the bright side of things and have trust in the Lord.  Moreover, GOSPEL is the spiritural nourishment that is used to "Feed the Sheep".

   

As GOSPEL music moves beyond its incubator, the church, it is imperative to understand where it is, where it has been, and where it is going.  As Christians, we must hope that the music is building bridges--not walls.  As GOSPEL continues to grow beyond most expectations, one can only hope that it will be embraced, regardless of how it is labeled, by everyone who needs to be reminded of the GOOD NEWS it represents.

Points Theatre - Empowerment Through Edutainment - The famous historian, Arnold Toynbee, once commented, "When we classify mankind by color, the only primary race that has not made a creative contribution to any civilization is the Black race." For 15 years and 2,500 performances, "1001 Inventions" has been an unusually funny antidote for this gross misconception.
