Lecture

The Black Eclectic...Revisited
Travis Jackson

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 

This talk is an examination of the contradictory relationship a selection of black musicians have had with the recording industry, the media, and audiences as their creative choices have gone against an unconscious conflation of racial, ethnic and class categories with musical styles and genres.

Travis Jackson is Associate Professor, Music and the Humanities, The University of Chicago.

This event will take place in Cobb Hall, Room 403, down the hall from the gallery. FREE
