African American Traditional Music, History and the Black Experience: Black Oklahoma Blues

Mississippi and Chicago are popular locations when discussing the blues. However, there are many regions that cultivated the musical expression. Black Oklahoma has a unique history in itself, and the Blues birthed there is birthed from a style known as “Texas Hot Box” Blues. The panel for this year’s conference will discuss the experiences of the Blues people of Oklahoma, past and present, and how the many historical events informed the movement, culture and expression of the people. The panel takes place on Friday, October 14th from 8:30PM – 10:30PM (Central Time).
