About the event

"HIDE/MELT/GHOST" is a multi-media public lecture, taken from the forthcoming book by Dr. Guthrie Ramsey, “Sound Proof: Black Music, Magic, and Racial Intimacies”. Live music and film help illustrate how the musical practices of the enslaved were deployed as a sign of humanity, as a melting pot for the diverse African cultural groups that would become African American people, and as a soundtrack for paranormal events like spirit possession. Music is a powerful cultural transaction with allegorical potential. It doesn't just reflect community values, it “makes” communities and creates social bonds.
