South Central Gospel

Overview

South Central Gospel is an intimate peek into the down-home gospel churches of South Central, Los Angeles, an area plagued with poverty, racial oppression and gang warfare. Gospel music, or "the Word of God in song," heals the spirit, calms the soul and provides solace and release amidst the troubles of life.  Rooted in the spirituals and blues of the American slave south, gospel music continues today as central part of lives of many African Americans. South Central Gospel weaves lively, heartfelt performances together with compelling interviews, including with 60's icon Willie Chambers, for a moving and entertaining look into the world of authentic gospel culture.
