FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - eMusicWire -- Gospel Music was created as a coping mechanism to deal with the circumstances the slaves found themselves in. They used their ability to sing and hum as a way of sending messages to one another and to confuse their slave masters.

In honor of celebrating Black History, the Old Dillard Foundation will present two music videos to celebrate the past while creating the present and building the future.
