Carnegie Hall

http://carnegiehall.org/honor/history/index.aspx

This spring Carnegie Hall presents Honor! A Celebration of the African American Cultural Legacy, curated by renowned soprano Jessye Norman. In support of this major initiative, Carnegie Hall has created a new website that charts the many paths of African-American musical history. Visitors to the site will be able to trace the development of African-American music from sacred traditions to Spirituals, blues to gospel, jazz to rhythm and blues, and all the way through rock 'n' roll and hip-hop. At each stop of this musical journey, photos and historical information are partnered with streaming audio, bringing this comprehensive timeline to life.

This online resource is available for free to the public, and will provide an invaluable tool for teachers and students around the world.
