Steal Away to JesusSongs of personal and collective pilgrimage, called spirituals, developed from the distinct experiences of slaves and settlers in seventeenth, eighteenth and possibly nineteenth-century North America. Spirituals of the African American experience, known as negro spirituals or slave songs, often expressed the despair and hope of a people who refused to give up in the midst of horrendous life circumstances for the understood God to be alt the helm of history. The White or Down East spiritual were born out of the experience of poverty and hardship among people whose only hope for relief seemed beyond the grave. These may have been tenant farmers or share croppers. Many ofthese songs emerge from the lives of early settlers in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee.
