The Gaithers and Southern Gospel

Ryan P. Harper

University Press of Mississippi

No Homecoming regular better illustrates the tension between expansion and preservation than Lynda Randle, the subject of the sixth chapter. The most pervasive African-American presence in the Homecomings, Randle functions both as evidence of and catalyst to the changes the Gaithers made and make to southern gospel culture. Unlike most African-American figures in the Homecomings, Randle is framed as a full member of the circle. However, even Randle’s full membership is contingent upon her embodiment and narration of race differences.
