Larry Wolfert, instructor
The influence of African-American musicians on the evolution of music has been immeasurable. Many of the songs that have come to be synonymous with struggle, empowerment, human rights and perseverance have come from the African-American community and become timelessstandards. From folk-blues artists from 100 years ago to Woodstock, the folk music of the African-American communities has created a soundtrack of incredible music. We will combine a retrospective life and music of artists including Paul Robeson, Leadbelly, Josh White, Odetta, Harry Belafonte and Richie Havens (among others), as well as highlight many of their breakthrough achievements.
