Jeandrevin, Ann Richelle, "Music of the Brown Church: Connecting Religion, Social Justice, Latina/o Studies and Worship Practices" (2022). Masters Theses. 861.
This thesis project aims to explore music that is being used in churches that serve the Latino/a/x/e communities in the United States, which is also referred to as The Brown Church. As music serves a vital role in the cultural background in these communities, as does faith, the connection between these facets will give better insight into this growing and changing society in the United States. In addition to exploring the relationship between faith and worship music, there is a connecting component through understanding the dark history of the Latin American church and how that impacts faith, worship, and social justice for Latino/a/x/e Christians.
