Blues Exhibition
Saturday, June 23
The Kansas African American Museum

Around the turn of the century, African Americans from the South created one of the most influential genres of popular music in America’s history: the blues. With roots in African musical traditions, work songs, spirituals and folk music, the blues became the inspiration for other genres: jazz, rock and roll, gospel, and popular music. Although traditional blues no longer commands the audience it once did, it has a rich and powerful history of soulful expression.

This exhibition celebrates the blues, its history and its legacy with photographs and interactive displays.
