FNRT 323: Survey of African-American Music

This course is a survey of African-American music through an examination of the major forms of music-making and dance developed among African-Americans in the United States from the early 17th century to the present. A brief introduction to West African cultural characteristics, especially music and dance, as well as discussions of the African diaspora in the New World, will serve as background for this survey.
