Spirituals and Shout Songs from the Georgia Coast

The McIntosh County Shouters SFW40214

Acclaimed upholders of the African American ring shout, the McIntosh County Shouters keep the faith, form, and fervor of the generations-old tradition rooted in their small community of coastal Georgia. Companion songs to the shuffle-step devotional movement called “shouting” have resisted slavery, strengthened spirit, and left us a cultural keystone for the future. Through their classic shout songs and spirituals, the Shouters beckon us to remember the past while envisioning the future of the African American cultural legacy.

The collection is part of the African American Legacy Series, co-presented with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
