New Orleans: Music, Culture, and Civil Rights

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two K-12 schoolteachers on the history and musical cultures of New Orleans.

The “City of New Orleans: A Landmark of American Music and Civil Rights” teacher workshop project aims to implement two immersive 5-day experiences at Tulane University and several locations throughout New Orleans in Summer 2017. Each week-long workshop will introduce participants to the evolution of New Orleans music, from its earliest beginnings to present day. All along the way, the development of this music will be situated within historical and cultural contexts, and in relation to the evolution of human and civil rights. Drawing from cutting-edge scholars, luminous performers, and Co-Director Sonya Robinson’s inquiry-driven practice, these experiences promise to nourish, challenge, and inspire teachers, and in turn enrich their classrooms.
