Music U.S.A- Jazz Hour

February 23, 2009

Project Description:

To use jazz music as a symbol of American democratic values and cultural diversity, as well as an emblem of cultural dissidence.

Learning Point:

Music serves as a universal global language, and when contested, can become an anthem of dissent.  The broadcast of jazz music on the Music USA-Jazz Hour program was a potent utilization of American soft power during the Cold War.
