Bull City Soul (Exhibition)
Title: Bull City Soul
Curator: Josh Davis
Abstract: Soul music grew out of black churches and high school band rooms. Young performers, inspired by a generation of older musicians rooted in gospel, blues, and jazz, developed a new style of music. Local radio and television exposed listeners to soul, and aspiring stars honed their craft in front of live audiences at the city’s nightclubs. Even the Civil Rights and Black Power movements encouraged this music’s rise. The Media and the Movement portion of this online exhibition illustrates the role of a number of our interviewees in these developments.
