Just my soul responding : rhythm and blues, Black consciousness, and race relations by Brian Ward( Book )

38 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radio and the struggle for civil rights in the South by Brian Ward( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Radio and the Struggle for Civil Rights in the South offers important new insights into the connections among radio, race relations, and the civil rights and black power movements in the South from the 1920s to the mid 1970s. For the mass of African Americans - and many whites - living in the region during this period, radio was the foremost source of news and information. Consequently, it is impossible to fully understanding the origins and development of the African American freedom struggle, changes in racial consciousness, and the transformation of southern racial practices without recognizing how radio simultaneously entertained, informed, educated, and mobilized black and white southerners."--Jacket

Kennedy's blues : African-American blues and gospel songs on JFK by Guido van Rijn( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kennedy's Blues: African-American Blues and Gospel Songs on JFK collects in a single volume the blues and gospel songs written by African Americans about the presidency of John F. Kennedy and offers a close analysis of Kennedy's hold upon the African-American imagination. These blues and gospel songs have never been transcribed and analyzed in a systematic way and so this volume provides a hitherto untapped source on the perception of one of the most intriguing American presidents." "After eight years of Republican rule, the young Democratic president received a warm welcome from African Americans. However, with the Cold War military draft and the slow pace of civil rights measures, inspiration temporarily gave way to impatience." "Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Medgar Evers, the March on Washington, and the groundbreaking civil rights bill all found their way into blues and gospel songs. The many blues numbers devoted to the assassination and the President's legacy are evidence of JFK's near-canonization by African Americans. Blues historian Guido van Rijn shows that John F. Kennedy became a mythical hero to blues songwriters despite what was left unaccomplished."--Jacket
