Failing Faith by Wade Bearden, Free for CAPC Members
In Failing Faith, Wade Bearden invites us into his life so that we might find a faith that can hold up under the weight of real-world realities.
Mary McCampbell joins the show to look back at the legacy of soul music and Stax Records, finding similar currents of black spirituality and commercial appeal that run through hip hop today.
Here’s a playlist of the songs Mary recommends our listeners check out:
Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”
Otis Redding’s “Respect”
Sam Moore & Dave Prater’s “Soul Man” (co-written by Isaach Hayes)
Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit”
The Staples Singers’ “When Will We Be Paid?”
Jesse Jackson reciting “I Am Somebody” at Wattsax in 1972
