Rhiannon Giddens by Ebru Yildiz
Rhiannon Giddens shatters centuries-long misconceptions about the music of minstrelsy. In a fascinating musical journey, she explores its African American roots and complicated cross-cultural beginnings, its theatrical development and distortion by white musicians wearing blackface, and its impact on contemporary music. Giddens and a group of outstanding musicians educate and entertain as they reclaim minstrelsy and set it in its place as important early American music.
