The six-week America’s Music program is a film and discussion series that looks at popular music from blues to bluegrass, Broadway to rock ‘n’ roll. Each event features films followed by a discussion (and frequently performances) led by UMKC musicologist Andrew Granade.
Featured are the documentaries Latin Music USA: Bridges (2009) and From Mambo to Hip Hop: A South Bronx Tale (2006), and a discussion/perfromance with KC rapper Denzel "D/Will" Williams.
