Guest Speakers: Authors Josephine Matyas/Craig jones of "Chasing the Blues: A Guide to America's Music" returns to NOVA. This event explores the music birthed in the Mississippi Delta by African Americans who fashioned a new form of musical expression grounded in their shared experiences of brutal oppression. They used the power of music to survive that oppression, creating a simple-in structure, emotionally complex form that transformed and upended culture and became the bedrock of popular music.  Students will learn that historically, this art form grew to involve all races and ethnicities, becoming one of society’s first and most successful examples of diversity.
