The Present: Reality of Blues Music Today
KDHX and the St. Louis Blues Society present “Race and the Blues in St. Louis” community dialogue series, featuring conversations designed to cultivate understanding around race relations as they pertain to the blues. This series will provide the context and tools to enable a continuing, constructive dialogue in the music community and bring people together by celebrating the legacy and future of the blues in St. Louis.

Conversations are led by Dr. Rosalind (Roz) Norman, professor of business at Webster University, former National Blues Museum interpretative coordinator, member of Cinema St. Louis and other artist guilds, and producer of media projects for Double Helix and various sources. Ample time will be allowed for audience participation.

By organizing this program, KDHX and the St. Louis Blues Society hope to shine a light on these issues, move the conversation forward, and help us all navigate a difficult and sometimes uncomfortable topic.

Panelists: Gene Dobbs Bradford, John May, Sharon Foehner, Dion Brown
