Triumph Over Adversity: A Musical Journey Through African American Poetry
Poetic works by Paul Laurence Dunbar, Langston Hughes, Maya Angelou, and other notable African American authors are analyzed and explored in this brand-new videoconference from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Through the videoconference, we will take a look at how musical settings of poetic texts affect their meaning, interpretation and impact. Students will orally interpret various poems, listen to live music performances, and play the role of lyricist as their own poems are set to blues music live during the class.
