i’m all kinds of uncomfortable with the term ‘outsider music’ and find it fraught with problems and, often, incredibly offensive and dismissive and it’s a term/concept that i would rather not engage with while discussing music.
still not dead. still largely without a ‘real’ computer. still wearing black pants. still listening to sun ra and those ‘music for saharan cellphones’ compilations. still reading books with words and sometimes pictures. still engaging in afternoon tea. still enjoying the stillness.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum will present The Long March: Civil Rights in Cartoons and Comics from August 16 – November 30, 2014. The exhibit presents the story of the Civil Rights Movement and its impact through original editorial cartoons, comic strips, and comic books drawn from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum’s collections. It will also include artwork drawn by Nate Powell, for March, Congressman John Lewis’s graphic memoir, a New York Times Bestseller co-written by Andrew Aydin, about his experiences as a leader and activist in the movement. The exhibit explores the tensions, struggles, and victories from multiple perspectives, including mainstream daily newspapers and the black press.
very tempted to drive out to columbus at some point for this.
