Dr. Charles Hersch, Chair and Professor, CSU's Political Science Department, will present a public lecture-discussion on his book, Subversive Sounds: Race and the Birth of Jazz in New Orleans. It probes the history of New Orleans, uncovering a web of racial interconnections and animosities that was instrumental to the creation of a vital American art form--jazz. Drawing on oral histories, police reports, newspaper accounts, and vintage recordings, Charles Hersch brings to vivid life the neighborhoods and nightspots where jazz was born.

To register, email Dr. Regennia N. Williams at r.williams@csuohio.edu, subject line "Subversive Sounds".
