This Week on Stateside

Singing in a Strange Land: C.L. Franklin and the Rise of the Black Church in America is the story of the “preacher with the golden voice”, the story of a family that most of us know through his daughter Aretha, and the story of Detroit and the black churches that helped shape politics and culture in America.

Listen to the interview with author Nick Salvatore on Michigan Radio’s Stateside and you’ll get a glimpse of the man who was a popular gospel recording artist, a nationally broadcast Sunday radio preacher and an influential civil rights leader who in 1963 in Detroit led one of the largest protest marches in the country.
