Teaching Decolonial Sounds on the Margins: Reflections on a K-12 Teacher Workshop Covering Black & Brown Musical Transculturation in Texas
Cervantes, Marco Antonio
Multicultural Education, v22 n3-4 p8-14 Spr-Sum 2015
To demonstrate the significance of cultural crossings in Texas and how cultural exchanges can inform teachers and students in the areas of history, fine arts, geography, and social studies, the author constructed a Summer 2013 teacher workshop for Texas K-12 teachers through the Smithsonian Affiliated Institute of Texan Cultures. The author separated his workshop into four parts on three days to demonstrate how cross-cultural connections between African American and Mexican American artists and intellectuals contribute to the cultural and economic formation of the state of Texas: (1) 1930s-1940s: Blues, Jazz, Orquesta, and Conjunto Roots; (2) 1950s-1960s: Doo Wop, R&B and Soul; (3) 1970s-1980s: the Funky Roots of Tejano Music; and (4) 1990s-2000: Freestyle and Hip Hop. In this article, the author describes and reflects on the workshop.
