Airs Friday, March 2, 2018, at 9 p.m. Dr. Carolyn Cooper, from the University of West Indies, explores how Jamaican music has given a voice to resistance against oppression, from Nyabinghi drumming during slavery, through 1970s reggae, the dancehall sound of the 1980s and 1990s, to the modern-day reggae revival. Cooper explores how the sounds of this Caribbean island have shaped its people and politics. As ethnomusicologist Dennis Howard says, in Jamaica, "Music is more than for enjoyment. It is part of our existence."

Airs Friday, February 23, 2018, at 9 p.m. Zydeco Nation is an hour-long, music-rich documentary that tells the story about an epic chapter in modern American history. Starting during World War II, French-speaking Louisiana Creoles began moving across the country to Northern California in search of both jobs and freedom. They were part of the Great Migration: the movement of six million African Americans from the Jim Crow South to the big cities of the West, North, and Midwest starting in 1915.
