The State Department used America’s predominantly Christian religion as part of its cultural presentations strategy. Many musical performers, including African American, white, and mixed choirs and even opera singers, performed Negro spirituals at the Department’s request. American musicians sang in Protestant churches and taught Christian music to choral groups, thereby supporting anti-Communist activity in Asia.
