Writer’s Discussion: David F. Garcia
March 22, 2018 @ 3:30 pm
UNC’s own David Garcia will be discussing his new book, Listening for Africa: Freedom, Modernity, and the Logic of Black Music’s African Origins. Dr. Garcia is an associate professor of ethnomusicology in the UNC Music Department. His work explores how a diverse group of musicians, dancers, academics, and activists engaged with the idea of black music and dance’s African origins between the 1930s and 1950s.
