 Our Mission

African American Spirituals is an Internet Web Application and Mobile App displaying the history of Negro Spirituals from its early beginnings with Slavery in America, the Civil Rights Movement to modern day Gospel Music.

Our goal is to display the rich heritage of this American genre that was created by enslaved Africans in America. We want to provide you with a deep soulful experience of African American Spirituals.

African American Spirituals, the number one resource for Negro Spirituals.

Deep River   Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child   Oh, Peter Go Ring Dem Bells
The Lonesome Valley   Listen To The Lambs   Swing Low, Sweet Chariot
I'm a-Trav'ling To The Grave   Go Down, Moses   It's a Me, O Lord Standin' In The Need of Prayer
Steal Away   My Way's Cloudy   Hard Trials
Heav'n, Heav'n Goin' to Shout All Over God's Heav'n   I Don't Feel No-ways Tired   Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Had
Ev'ry Time I Feel The Spirit   I'm A Rolling   Wait 'Till I Put On My Crown
Jesus On The Waterside   Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel   Roll, Jordan, Roll
Wrestle On, Jacob       I've Been In The Storm So Long

Harry T Burleigh
December 2, 1866 to September 12, 1949
