Lynda Randle and Race
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.
