Description

Emancipation Proclamation: Race, Image and Sound: African American Image in American Popular Culture 1830-1910- May 16 2014, presented at the 48th annual conference of The Association for Recorded Sound Collections, Sheraton Chapel Hill, North Carolina with academic host UNC, Chapel Hill Introduction by Brenda Nelson-Strauss: Head of Collections: Indiana University: Archives of African American Music and Culture With presenter, Tim Brooks, renown author of Lost Sounds: Blacks and The Birth of The Recording Industry 1890-1919 and authority on early sound recordings of Minstrelsy Videographer: Michael Biel, Association for Recorded Sound Collections Video finishing/editing: Tele Video Productions Services[TVPS] Oakland, California The subject- a veritable doctoral thesis- was presented to examine and embrace a deeper understanding of the origins of an American cultural phenomenon-Minstrelsy and Coon Songs- that played a critical cultural and political role in the Nation’s understanding of Race and Race identity. A full evening presentation shortened to 30 minutes- this paper examines what is considered painful history –that has current day relevancy--as a vehicle for creating inter generational and cross cultural dialogue and for understanding social, cultural and political circumstances in Our Times. The subject presented in historical contextualization is a full academic year course. The curriculum of reading, the video clips, the rare imagery and historic rare Early Sound recordings from my Archive all call out for academic residency. In the absence of that, different aspects can be embedded into conference Panels as well as full afternoon/evening presentations.
