A History of the Afro-American Through His Songs. Part of a Packet with Audiotape.
This publication evolved from a workshop entitled "A History of the Afro-American Through His Songs," at the New York State Education Department, October 1968. The conference was designed for representatives of the cities which have been designated to receive urban funds. The purpose of the meeting was: (1) to present a demonstration illustrating the latest techniques of teaching Afro-American folk music; (2) to show ways of developing in children an appreciation for the musical and cultural contributions of the American Negro; and, (3) to demonstrate the historical and cultural qualities embodied in Afro-American folk music. Bernice Reagon provided an audio-tape of her demonstration. In addition to the tapes and the workshop report, the words to each of the songs have been included in the text. The material in this report represents the information Bernice Reagon provided orally at the workshop. [The audiotape which accompanies this document is not available from EDRS, but from BOCES Regional Communication Centers at a cost of $2.00.] (Author/JW)
