Summary
"This work is by no means an exhaustively detailed study of gospel music in Chicago. Its intent is to chronicle the development of Chicago gospel music during its first five decades, from pioneers such Thomas Dorsey and Sallie Martin to the start of the contemporary gospel era of the 1970s, when the focus shifted from Chicago to California"--Introduction (page 7)
