American Routes, Routes to Recovery: Memories of People and Places

Production of six two-hour programs and four one-hour documentary programs to be featured on American Routes radio program.

American Routes requests that the NEH consider a grant to support the special "Routes to Recovery: Memories of People and Places" series of humanities topical programs, hour documentaries and embedded features. Building on prior NEH-supported programming and drawing on the insights of the post-Katrina years, American Routes will produce 6 two-hour programs and 4 one-hour documentary programs focused on the theme of recovery and rebuilding of community through memories of musicians and artists-all expressed in the words and music of artists, with the critical advice, interpretation and/or interviews of humanities specialists. American Routes is the weekly, two-hour nationally distributed public radio program produced in New Orleans devoted to songs and stories, humanist and artist narratives, that explore humanities and aesthetic issues through the expression of vernacular music. Folklorist Nick Spitzer is host.
