On Friday, November 12, 2021, Baylor University opened the doors to its new Black Gospel Archive and Listening Center. It is an extension of the Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, funded initially by Charles Royce and helmed by Baylor professor Robert Darden.

JGM’s Bob Marovich was honored to be part of the grand opening celebration program, where he and Prof. Darden discussed “Why Gospel Music Matters.”
