Storyboard Text

  • Spirituals were very important in the lives of African American slaves. They were used for entertainment (both game and dance) and for big events, such as: a wedding or a birthday. Spirituals were also used to teach children about their heritage and about myths of their culture. Slaves would also use spirituals to communicate with each other in the fields. Spirituals often had a double meaning. Slaves often used spirituals as codes to communicate information. Spirituals also helped to keep the slaves' faith alive. They helped slaves keep their hope and relieve some of the pain. Slaves also used spirituals to protest against slavery.
