Eating Crow: Five Years of Comics: Christian Kloepfer
(Columbia) 14 tracks 2017er Veröffentlichung. 50 Jahre Blond auf Blond wurde im Mai 2016 im CMA Theater in der historischen Country Music Hall of Fame und im Museum in Nashville, TN, live aufgenommen. Das Album wurde von dem Grammy-Preisträger Ted Hutt und der Ryan Mall gemischt. Fünfzig Jahre sind eine lange Zeit für einen Ort wie Nashville, Tennessee. Die Zeit vergeht hier langsam im schlammigen Cumberland River. Aber bestimmte Dinge haben das Tempo unserer Stadt beschleunigt. Und einige Leute haben die Zeiger der Uhr zum Drehen gebracht. Bob Dylan ist die größte dieser zeitbeugenden, paradigmenwechselnden Nashville-Katzen´´, sagt Ketch Secor, der Hauptsänger der Old Crow Medicine Show. Als Bob 1966 in Nashville beschloss, seine neu entdeckte Rock n´ Roll-Stimme aufzunehmen, öffnete er die Tore der Country-Musik weit; so weit, dass 50 Jahre später noch genug von einem Spalt für die Old Crow Medicine Show übrig war, um mit ihren Banjos und Geigen durch die Tore zu schleichen.

In 1919 the NAACP organized a voting bloc powerful enough to compel the city of Atlanta to budget $1.5 million for the construction of schools for black students. This victory would have been remarkable in any era, but in the context of the Jim Crow South it was revolutionary. Schooling Jim Crow tells the story of this little-known campaign, which happened less than thirteen years after the Atlanta race riot of 1906 and just weeks before a wave of anti-black violence swept the nation in the summer after the end of World War I. Despite the constant threat of violence, Atlanta´s black voters were able to force the city to build five black grammar schools and Booker T. Washington High School, the city´s first publicly funded black high school. Schooling Jim Crow reveals how they did it and why it matters. In this pathbreaking book, Jay Driskell explores the changes in black political consciousness that made the NAACP´s grassroots campaign possible at a time when most black southerners could not vote, let alone demand schools. He reveals how black Atlantans transformed a reactionary politics of respectability into a militant force for change. Contributing to this militancy were understandings of class and gender transformed by decades of racially segregated urban development, the 1906 Atlanta race riot, Georgia´s disfranchisement campaign of 1908, and the upheavals of World War I. On this cultural foundation, black Atlantans built a new urban black politics that would become the model for the NAACP´s political strategy well into the twentieth century.
