Lecture: Susan Hellauer with Clifton Boyd

April 11, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Jim Crow and Zip Coon: Racial Stereotypes in American Popular Music

More than a century of musical entertainment rooted in blackface performance and the minstrel show created deep and destructive stereotypes about African Americans that persist to this day. Susan Hellauer and Clifton Boyd trace the development of these racist themes through American popular music from the first blackface hit, Jump Jim Crow of 1828, to the culture-quaking musical protests of Billie Holiday and Marian Anderson in 1939.

Estimated run time: 30 minutes, followed by a Q&A.

The lectures remain free as a service to the community. We ask that you please consider supporting this meaningful work with a small donation ($10 suggested).

RSVP (Required)

Please RSVP by April 11 at noon. Capacity is limited. A ZOOM invitation will be sent to those who complete and submit the form.
