The ring shout is one of the oldest customs in African American culture. It dates back to the beginning of slavery in the U.S., when slaves combined elements of Christianity with African songs and dance rituals. The ring shout eventually faded from memory, but Emily Friedman speaks with people from all over the country who are working to bring back the tradition, one shout at a time.
