New Installment of "Teaching the JAH": Black Swan Records and the Political Economy of African American Music
The Journal of American History is pleased to announce a new installment of its "Teaching the JAH," featuring David Suisman's article, "Co-workers in the Kingdom of Culture: Black Swan Records and the Poltical Economy of African American Music."
This "Teaching" focuses on Black Swan Records, the first major black-owned record company, and raises provocative issues about music, racial and cultural uplift, economic development, and the relationship between art and business. Using sound recordings, sheet music, newspaper advertisements, and magazine articles, this installment invites you to dig deeply into the questions the Black Swan story raises.
"Teaching the JAH" uses online tools to bridge the gap between scholarly publishing and the practice of classroom teaching. The project delivers "teaching packages," each of which features an article from the print journal, along with supporting source materials that demonstrate how it might be used in the U.S. history classroom.
