We’ll hear about Elvis Presley’s gospel music influences and how he brought gospel to White audiences; the role of gospel music in the civil rights movement, with Mahalia Jackson and Mavis Staples; and the bridging of pop and gospel music, with Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye. That’s coming up, on the next World Cafe.

World Cafe airs weekdays at 2:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 /  streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org  / Listen live on-the-go with the FREE KRCB Mobile App from the App Store & Google Play.
