America's Music is a six-week public program featuring documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions about twentieth-century American popular music. The grantee will present six programs on these uniquely American musical traditions: blues and gospel, Broadway, jazz, bluegrass and country, rock, and mambo and hip hop. It will also encourage scholar-led discussion about the documentary films and the project's major humanities theme.
