MUSI 008B. Music, Race and Class

(Cross-listed as BLST 008B )
What is the power of music? How can music empower individuals and groups in the fight for justice? In this course we will investigate contemporary case studies from around the world when groups have employed music to confront racism and classism in pursuit of social justice. Case studies include Apartheid South Africa, Buraku Taiko drummers in Japan, and the Kamehameha Schools Songs Contest in Hawai'i. Students will complete an original community project to share their course experience with other students on campus. Open to all students without prerequisite.
