South Bound and Down: Podcast on Music and the Anti-Apartheid Movement

Below is a discussion of the role of music and digital scholarship in teaching the history of South Africa’s liberation from Apartheid. My colleague David Glovsky  and I talk about Dr. Peter Alegi’s proposal for an NEH project that creates a digital repository of the music and video footage used to create the documentary film Amandla!. The discussion also continues a conversation of the digital history and digital scholarship Dave and I have been participating in as a part of the MSU graduate seminar South Africa in the Digital Age.

  1. Halala, bangane bam! I am particularly impressed with the quality of your inaugural podcast, having listened to some particularly poor NBIH podcasts in the last few weeks. Keep it up and you might rise to the status of Afripod!

    • Jill, Thank you for the encouraging comments. I had a great time making the podcast. I hope to do some more of these in the future and maybe even use them in courses some day.
