"Up South traces the efforts of two generations of black Philadelphians in turn the City of Brotherly Love into a place of promise and opportunity for all. While Philadelphia rarely appears in histories of the modern civil rights struggle, the city was home to a vibrant and groundbreaking movement for racial justice in the years between World War II and the 1970s. By broadening the chronological and geographic parameters of the civil rights movement. Up south explores the origins of civil rights liberalism, the failure of the liberal program of antidiscrimination legislation and interracial coalition-building to deliver on its promise of racial equality, and the subsequent rise of the Black Power movement."--BOOK JACKET

“Go and Make Disciples”: Evangelization, Conversion Narratives, and Salvation in Puerto Rican Protestant Evangelical Salsa Music by Luis A. Vazquez Chair: Matthew J. Countryman Since the origin and development of salsa music in the 1960s, religious themes have been present in the discography of this music genre. One of the religions to have a major impact on Puerto Rican salsa music culture is Protestant evangelicalism. From the 1970s onward, numerous secular salsa artists have testified converting to this faith tradition. The conversions of these musicians have led to the development of the evangelical salsa movement. As a result, these musicians have created unique ways of merging musical practices with religious faith in their urban evangelical salsa music ministries. Yet, this musical and religious phenomenon has not been given ample scholarly treatment in academic circles. Go and Make Disciples is an analysis of the Puerto Rican Protestant evangelical salsa movement. Through the use of an interdisciplinary methodology, I examine the major themes, artists, and practices of this musical expression. My use of interviews examines the motives behind the conversion of evangelical salsa musicians to Protestant evangelicalism. I use musical analysis to understand the role of record covers, music arrangements, sound, and song texts in the evangelistic mission of evangelical salsa ministries. Supplementing these methods is my use of ethnography to study the act of evangelization as it takes place in live evangelical salsa events. As such, I analyze the role of the sonero (salsa singer) in the evangelization of the music audience. Go and Make Disciples argues that Puerto Rican evangelical salsa music developed as music of evangelization as a result of the marginalization of salsa musicians from the Protestant evangelical community. Rather than abandon their faith, the musicians’ response was the development of a salsa music expression that combined evangelical fa
