Grant details:

The Banjo Project (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: The Banjo Project
Author: L. Marc Fields
Author: Shaun Clarke
Abstract: The Banjo Project is a digital museum and archive that honors the banjo as America's quintessential instrument, and the roles the banjo has played in the lives of Americans from its African roots to present day modern artists and bands. Brought to America by enslaved Africans, the banjo is an important product of three centuries of cultural exchanges, appropriations and face-to-face interactions, traveling between the margins and the mainstream, and its history should not be forgotten.
