Rhodes Tower, room 503
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line "Subversive Sounds".
The lecture and discussion are presented with the support of the Ohio Humanities Council, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
This event is in partnership with Octavofest: Celebrating the Book and Paper Arts.
