Hutchmoot Podcast & Video: A Theology of the Blues & Belonging

By

The Hutchmoot Podcast features some of our favorite sessions recorded at our annual conference which celebrates art, music, story, and faith in all their many intersections. Today, it is our pleasure to share Ruth Naomi Floyd’s session “A Theology of the Blues & Belonging” from 2020’s Hutchmoot: Homebound, in both video and audio form.

You can watch Ruth’s session below, in which she explores how the blues were birthed from the African American Spirituals, which is the root of American music. This body of music is deeply Christian in its pursuit of justice, and its lament is the ache for human dignity and belonging.
