"We Gon' Be Alright: African-American History through Music"

Master Class for Students / Free admission / Please register at bibliothek@amerikahaus.de

From work songs and spirituals of the times of slavery to jazz, blues, and bebop of the Harlem Renaissance; from the anthems of the Civil Rights Movement to hip hop and today’s diverse soundtrack of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, we will take a closer look at how music reflects and shapes the social context in which it is created and performed.
