New Orleans: Music, Culture and Civil Rights
"New Orleans: Music, Culture, and Civil Rights" is an immersive, week-long workshop that will introduce participants to the evolution of New Orleans music and culture, from the city's earliest beginnings to present day. This development will be situated within historical contexts in relation to the evolution of human and civil rights, visiting significant sites throughout the city. Built on an inquiry-driven practice and drawing from the knowledge and spirit of cutting-edge scholars, luminous performers, local civil rights leaders and the workshop co-directors, these experiences promise to nourish, challenge, and inspire teachers, and in turn enrich their classrooms.
