A History of African American Music: Interactive Digital Timeline Discovery Project

Development of a web experience and on-site interactives focused on the history of African American music at Carnegie Hall.

Carnegie Hall requests an NEH Digital Projects for the Public Discovery Grant of $30,000 to support the exploratory phase of an initiative to update and relaunch an existing interactive digital timeline of the history of African American music. The project seeks to modernize the timeline from several perspectives: design and technology, chronology, and thematic content. In its current form, the timeline’s technical infrastructure is outdated and has only limited multimedia functionality. Recognizing the enduring value of this resource and the importance of this area of American music history, Carnegie Hall is committed to redeveloping the timeline.The goal of the discovery phase work is to develop a design document that demonstrates the integration of humanities ideas, digital technology, and public outreach strategies for the updated interactive timeline.
