This course explores the broad range of African American music in cultural and historical contexts. Beginning with an overview of music in African culture, course topics include a survey of folk music, spirituals, gospel, blues, jazz, and art music. Although the class lectures and discussions examine the diversity of African American musical expressions, the assigned viewings and readings will correspondingly encompass the political, social, economic, and religious variables that stimulated the evolution of particular music styles and genres.
