Harlem Timeline - 2. Part 2

HARLEM TIMELINE - 2. PART 2 (320kbs-m4a/130mb/56mins)
BBC Radio 6 Music broadcast: 17th September 2017

In his second journey into Harlem's history, Soweto Kinch finds out about the rich gospel tradition, explores the art, music and poetry of the harlem Renaissance, and traces the story of jazz from swing to bebop. He visits the place where politician Marcus Garvey addressed the crowds from a soapbox, and finds out where African American thinker and reformer W. E. B DuBois lived and worked. He hears about the legendary Savoy Ballroom, and the late night clubs like Minton's and the Uptown House where Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie created a new style of jazz. Finally as the 1940s progress, rhythm and blues arrives on the scene and the everyday sound of Harlem is transformed.

First broadcast in on BBC Radio 2 in 2009.
