What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A wonderfully engaging and intellectually creative rendering of African American life, the city, and even U.S. foreign affairs through the life and music of Big Bill Broonzy.—Davarian L. Baldwin, author of Chicago's New Negroes



By emphasizing Broonzy's successive (and successful) eras of self-reinvention, Greene persuasively positions this blues musician as a prism for understanding shifts in racial, national, and global identity in the twentieth century.—Joel Dinerstein, author of The Origins of Cool in Postwar America
