"Blacks and Jews in American Music", Carlisle, PA, Oct 7, 2007

Robert Wiener will present an hour-long version of his audio-video material on "Blacks and Jews in American Music" at the Asbell Center of Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA, this Sunday, October 7th, at noon. The program and bagel brunch are co-sponsored by Diversity Initiatives and the Music Department.

Music will range from spirituals, ragtime, jazz, gospel, show tunes, folk music, and popular music. Wiener will discuss how the music of American Blacks and Jews reflect the complicated relationship between these two groups. From the first part of the 20th century to WWII, from the Cold War to the present, you will hear the similarities and differences.
