LiveWires:Spirituals to Hip Hop: The Political & Social History of American Music

Using recorded music, film clips and still images Kevin Comtois traces the evolution of American music from early slave spirituals, through the hugely popular minstrelsy in the late 19th century, to the blues and jazz that developed at the opening of the 20th Century, to the Rock n Roll of the late 40s and early 50s, and ending with the various strains of American pop music of the last thirty years.
