Gerald R. Knight, associate professor of music and coordinator for music education was an invited lecturer this past summer at the Salzburg Institute of Religion, Culture and the Arts in Salzburg, Austria. 

The institute investigates the arts and humanities within the context of the Christian tradition. Knight’s presentation, “Black Sacred Music in Protest and Social Justice: Prophetic Theology and Enlightenment Ideologies,” provided analysis of the texts of black sacred music as commentary on the social, economic, religious, and political issues relating to the enslavement of black people in America and the persistent manifestations of injustice in contemporary American society.
