Biographical Dictionary of African-American Holiness-Pentecostals
Finally there is a comprehensive bibliographical guide to the Afro-American Pentecostal churches in the United States, serving as both a reference text and as a general introduction to this major religious movement. The author traces the evolution of holiness churches from their founding in the South in the 1880s, through the Azusa Street Revival in 1906, to the present day. Entries examine organizations, movements, terminology, and many individuals, with a particular focus on the gospel groups, singers, and musicians who rose out of the movement. Books, periodical articles, dissertations, theses, oral interviews, pamphlets, newspaper articles, Work Projects Administration reports, FBI reports, and church documents are cited. An index is included.
