African American Community By 1945, nearly everyone in the African American community had heard gospel music (2). At this time, gospel music was a sacred folk music with origins in field hollers, work songs, slave songs, Baptist lining hymns, and Negro spirituals. These songs that influenced gospel music were adapted and reworked into expressions of praise and thanks of the community. Although the harmonies were similar to those of the blues or hymns in that they shared the same simplicity, the rhythm was much different.

African American Culture African American Culture Culture is not a fixed phenomenon, nor is it the same in all places or to all people. It is relative to time, place, and particular people. Learning about other people can help us to understand ourselves and to be better world citizens.

... sting section of a work. In most cases, the composer eventually returns to the original key. Another important element of harmony is the cadence. This is a succession of chords that end a musical work or one of its sections. Most pieces of classical music end with a perfect cadence, which consists of a dominant chord followed by a tonic chord.

Wrou I chose to do my report on WROU 92.1 FM, a Dayton urban contemporary radio station that plays rhythm and blues (R&B), and rap.

In the interview, he stated that WROU aims for the 18-49 demographic age range, with a concentration on 25-44 year old females. When 92.1 first came on the air they were the only station aiming toward African American demographics in Dayton, ...
