Bodies of Sound: Locating the Beautiful in African American Music

04:30 pm to 05:30 pm
Grand Hall, Neal Marshall Black Culture Center

Hosted by the Archives of African American Music and Culture (AAAMC), this panel discussion will explore concepts of beauty in music from two distinct, though related perspectives. Representations of gendered body images, male and female, will serve as one area of focus, while the second topic will explore the body of aesthetic values which distinguish African American performance in ways which not only contrast, but often contradict those preferred by the larger American public. Panelists include guest speaker and distinguished scholar Dr. Deborah Smith Pollard (University of Michigan–Dearborn), Dr. Alisha Jones (IU Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology), and Dr. Tyron Cooper (IU Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies). Followed by a reception and exhibit opening in the Bridgwaters Lounge. Accompanying playlists available on Spotify and Youtube.
