I’m looking forward to traveling to my home state this week. Visiting family is always awesome, plus, I’ve got two fun gigs lined up. Both of these talks are based on material from my forthcoming book with Oxford University Press: “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child”: The Transformative Journey of an American Song.
Public lecture: “‘A Spiritual for All People?’ ‘Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child’ in the Diaspora(s)”
Friday morning (October 17), at the Oregon State University Hip-Hop Festival and Symposium
Paper: “Canons, Digital Genealogies, and the Legacy of the RZA’s “Motherless Child”
Friends in the Pacific Northwest: come say hello!
