Wednesday, February 28 @ 6:00 pm
Reflecting on music, sports, language, food, and even hair, this talk calls audiences to recognize the blues that made African American popular culture. The innovations created under oppression are often appropriated by the oppressor—they want our rhythm. And such culture and creativity has been forged from their everyday struggles—but they do not want our blues.
