An historical survey of the unique development of jazz from its origins as an African-American art form to its present status as an American art form. The course will be taught in conjunction with African-American History and will meet Westminster’s visual and performing arts intellectual perspective requirement and will typically satisfy most other institutions’ general education/fine arts requirement.
