Portrait of Charles Albert Tindley in suit and tieCharles Albert Tindley (1851-1933) was a powerful Methodist preacher in Philadelphia. A self-educated descendent of slaves, Tindley often wrote hymns to go with his sermons reflecting the struggles, faith, blessings and joys of his predominantly African-American congregation. Tindley was the first writer/composer of “black gospel music,” a genre later fully developed by Thomas A. Dorsey.

Join Scarritt Bennett for a special concert celebrating life and works of Charles Tindley. The concert will feature Tindley’s works as sung by choirs and soloists of Unity Missionary Baptist Church, Howard Congregational Church UCC, and Edgehill United Methodist Church.
