Book Description

From Jubilee to Hip Hop includes 36 reading selections that underscore the breadth and variety of African American musical culture.  Each of these selections relates something notable and interesting about African American musical culture since the Emancipation,  whether it is Marian Anderson's recollection of the legendary 1939 DAR Constitution Hall debacle, or John Chilton's story of the impact of Louis Jordan's song, "Caldonia."
