Monday 10 August 10, 6.30-8.30pm
Black British Music (BBM) presents
UK & US Music & Social-Political Action and Woody Guthrie
It consists of the screening of Prof Will Kaufman‘s ‘Woody Guthrie: The Long Road to Peekskill’* plus Q&A, including interview with Prof Kaufman. Please note that this programme is likely to finish closer to 9pm!
‘This is a special programme, in that we’re looking outwards of the UK, to explore what we can learn regarding a US history of civil rights activism, and role of music and musicians like Woody Guthrie, Lead Belly, and Paul Robeson, within that history.’
