Rice to Present in Faculty Forum

Marc Rice, professor of music, will present “Musical Representation in the Black Newspapers of the Midwest: New Revelations and Possibilities” at 7 p.m. Feb. 20 in Magruder Hall as part of the Faculty Forum series.

Presentation abstract:
From the 1880s to the 1940s, dozens of African American newspapers were established in the Midwest by editors whose progressive politics encouraged activism among their readership. These newspapers provided a wealth of material about Black American music and its audience reception, allowing us to understand more fully the role that music played in African American communities in our region.
