John Wesley Preservation Society and the Oxford Community Center team up to present the “Evolution of Gospel Music“. The program was created by Leroy Potter and Richard Potter, President of the Talbot County Branch of the NAACP. The “Evolution of Gospel Music” chronologically tells the story of gospel music moving from Negro spirituals to spirituals to traditional gospel to contemporary gospel. The evening combines history and music for a full immersive experience. There will be free nibbles and refreshments provided along with cash bar.
This program is presented in honor of Black History Month and sponsored by the Talbot County and Maryland State Art Councils.
