America's Music: A Film History of Our Popular Music from Blues to Bluegrass to Broadway

"America's Music is a six-week public program featuring documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions of 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 projects' major humanities themes.
