1. The Negro Spirituals have been called the only indigenous music of America. Do you agree with that statement? Why or why not? Provide evidence.

2. During the 1950s and 1960s, Motown Records and Staxx Records represented the two poles of soul music. How did the Motown and Staxx represent the belief of soul music by Black people for black people (Staxx) and soul music by Black people for mainstream (white) consumption? Provide examples.

3.

How has Black popular music (blues, soul, hip-hop) continued the tradition of the “sorrow song”?
