Black Gospel Music Restoration Project

The purpose of this project is to identify, acquire, preserve, record and catalogue the most at-risk music from the Black gospel music tradition. This collection primarily contains 78s, 45s, LPs, and the various tape formats issued in the United States and abroad between the 1940s and the 1980s. The ultimate goal is to have a copy of every song released by every Black gospel artist or group during that time period.
