Webinar: Reaching the Ears of the Nation: Frederick Douglass’ Narratives and the African American Musical Traditions

Join us for this free webinar of the Ensemble for the Romantic Center, to be held on Monday, 7 November, from 5:30 to 7:00pm. We will investigate the repercussions and influence of Frederick Douglass’s narratives of freedom and personhood and their inspirational role in sustaining African American discourses in culture and the arts, with emphasis on the development of an African American classical music tradition and the cultural role of hip hop and rap music in modern American society.

This webinar provides context for the upcoming Ensemble for the Romantic Century concert on 17 November.
