THE NEXT JUBILEE: Black Music and the Possible Impossible

Please join the Department of Performing Arts and the Department of African American Studies, in collaboration with the Racial Justice Initiative, for its speaker series event on Black Art and Activism Speaker Series featuring Dr. Shana Redmond.

Redmond is Professor of Musicology and African American Studies.  She is the author of Anthem: Social Movements and the Sound of Solidarity in the African Diaspora (New York University Press, 2014), which is an interdisciplinary cultural history that tracks the songs that organized the modern Black world. Her most recent book, Everything Man: The Form and Function of Paul Robeson (Duke University Press, January 2020), develops the theory of “antiphonal life” in order to track Robeson’s sonic travels, form, and animation throughout the twentieth century.
