Dr. Carol Reynolds (aka "Professor Carol") guides you through America's cultural history in this 4-hour program on DVD. While not a complete curriculum on American music and art, the program deals with many important developments as people from across the world came to settle in America and brought their artistic heritage with them.
We encounter the arts in history too often as an afterthought or as a footnote in a chronology devoted to great men and cataclysmic upheavals. The culture that shaped those great men and the social forces that sparked the upheavals are recorded in the arts. Songs chronicled events long before any historian looked back to calculate their impact.
