SLAVE MUSICIANS PLAYED INSTRUMENTS,SOME INSTRUMENTS THEY MADE....SOME SLAVES PRACTICED A CHRISTMAS MASQUERADE CALLED JONKONNU.CHRISTMAS TO SLAVES WAS A TIME FOR SPIRITUAL FREEDOM.SLAVES DEVELOPED THEIR OWN STYLE OF RELIGIOUS SONGS, CALLED SPIRITUALS.....SOME SLAVES ATTENDED RELIGIOUS GATHERINGS.CONTROLLED BY THE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS SLAVE OWNERS DENOMINATIONS,BAPTIST AND METHODIST....RELIGION IS A FORM OF WHITE SUPREMACY.BLACK CHURCH CONTROLLED BY THE WHITE RELIGIOUS AND POLITICIANS..............HAS NOT STOPPED....
