A History of African American Music: Interactive Digital Timeline Prototyping Project

Development of a website prototype and interactive timeline on the history of African American music.

Carnegie Hall requests an NEH Digital Projects for the Public Prototyping Grant of $100,000 to develop a working prototype as the next phase of an initiative to redevelop an interactive digital timeline of the history of African American music. The goal of the prototyping process is to produce an engaging and innovative resource that makes the humanities content on African American music, culture, and history accessible to a broad public audience. By engaging in an iterative, user-centered, and mobile-first design approach, Carnegie Hall intends to create a dynamic, responsive resource with multifaceted layers that can continue to grow, evolve, and be used and sustained over time. Carnegie Hall plans to relaunch the timeline prominently and support broad engagement with the new digital resource for music lovers, students, educators, and researchers worldwide.
