Shout Troubles Over: Gospel Video Bootleg

Yeti Publications Presents: Shout Troubles Over: Gospel Video Bootleg . This event is part of the Portland Black Film Festival .

This incredible program features rare scenes of gospel music from the dawn of motion pictures to last month, with images of not only music but also Pentecostal streetcorner sermons and Church of God in Christ “praise breaks.” The music is from such well-known artists as the Staple Singers, Highway QC’s, Rev. Charlie Jackson and Sister Rosetta Tharpe to unknown and obscure performers. There will be a mix of black and white performers, with some Jamaican gospel as well, though mostly it will consist of African-American gospel from the 1950s-‘70s.

The Portland Black Film Festival is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
