This was music that spread love in the face of hate, segregation and violence.
History of Rock and Soul Music
Soul music originated in the United States in the 1950s and early 1960s. It combined African-American gospel music, rhythm and blues and jazz music. Soul music became popular for dancing and listening in the United States and was influential during the period of the civil rights movement, directly influencing rock music. These are catchy rhythms, stressed by hand-claps and extemporaneous body moves and dance. Soul music dominated the US African-American music charts in the 1960s, and many songs crossed over into the pop charts.
