Slavery And The Making Of America,
Feb 9 & Feb 16
Coming to PBS on Feb. 9th and the 16th from 9PM to 11PM is the four part
series Slavery And The Making Of America, produced by Dante James, and
narrated by Morgan Freeman. Dante is an incredible filmmaker who has
produced many award wining films among them biographies on Marian Anderson
and A. Philip Randolph. He worked with the late great filmmaker Henry
Hampton at Blackside and was the executive producer of Hampton's last
series This Far By Faith: African American Spiritual Journeys.
Slavery And The Making Of America tells the story of slavery from the point
of view of the enslaved. The series recognizes the strength, humanity and
dignity of the enslaved and redefines them as pro-active
freedom fighters not passive victims.
It is essential to pass this email on to friends and family and encourage
them to watch. If we can create a large audience for this important series
PBS will be forced to produce and air more programs that address the
African-American experience. There are also two web sites for the series

A reminder - I hope you're planning to come!
I would like to invite you to join me
at the Michigan Theater on Friday, January 27 at 8:00
p.m. for a unique opportunity to contribute to the preservation
of New Orleans' musical heritage. Arts at Michigan, with
the help of many University departments, will present
the Hot 8 Brass Band - an exciting young band from New
Orleans - to benefit the Jazz Foundation of America. (You
may had the pleasure of hearing the Hot 8 on NPR featured
in the new year's celebration on air.)
As all of you know, New Orleans plays
a central role in our musical history and continues to
be a focal point of musical innovation and influence.
This benefit is an opportunity for all of us to help New
Orleans musicians get back on their feet and keep the
music alive. Those of you who have been involved know
the enormous amount of work that has gone into this project.
I would be personally grateful to see all of you in attendance
on January 27.
The band will be in residence to participate
in a couple of public talks on New Orleans music as well
as conduct workshops with School of Music students on
Jan 25 and 26 leading up to the performance.
Here are the details:
Friday, January 27
Price: suggested contribution of $20 ($10 for students)
at the door. CD with contributions of $50 or more. General
This New Orleans - based brass band,
winner of the Big Easy Entertainment Award for Best Contemporary
Brass Band, led the first of the city's post-Katrina traditional
high-spirited jazz funeral parades.
Proceeds benefit the Jazz Foundation of America, an organization
that since Katrina has provided assistance to New Orleans
with housing, locating and distributing donated instruments,
funding gigs in schools and shelters, and connecting the
city's displaced musicians with opportunities for employment
across the United States.
I would like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out the membership survey. The ABPAFS Executive Board is meeting to discuss the results. You will hearing more in the coming Newsletters.

Provoked by racial and social injustices endured by
American Indians, she has served as a lighting rod for
change. She challenges the inappropriate use of American
Indian images, cultural, and spiritual life ways by schools,
scholars, museums, corporations, and the media.
Charlene Teters is a founding Board Member of the
National Coalition on Racism in Sports and the Media,
an artist, activist, and lecturer. She challenges the
inappropriate use of American Indian images, culture and
spiritual life ways by schools, scholars, museums, corporations,
and media. In 1988 she and her artwork became politicized
at The University of Illinois, a school that uses as their
mascot the image of a fantasy "Chief." The history
of Charlene's work is the subject of a nationally aired
award winning documentary "In Whose Honor?"
by Jay Rosenstein. She continues to expose deeply ingrained
perceptions, stereotypes and racism aimed at American
Indians through her multimedia art installations, writings
