AMS and Rock Hall Lecture Series with Tammy Kernodle

When: Thu., Oct. 19 2017

Each year, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the American Musicological Society present two events that feature members of the Society talking about topics relevant to the mission of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Rock Hall Library and Archives. Tonight at 7 at the Library and Archives, Tammy L. Kernodle, a specialist in African American music and gender studies at Miami University (Ohio), delivers her lecture about how Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples, and Roberta Flack emerged in the late 1960s as artists that "used musical performances to mediate audiences through one of America’s most chaotic and violent periods." Admission is free, but reservations are required. (Niesel)
