LEND A HAND: Library to Host Film Series


Clevenger, Margaret, The Tuscaloosa News


TUSCALOOSA | Next year, the Tuscaloosa Public Library will host "America's Music: A Film History of Our Popular Music from Blues to Bluegrass to Broadway," a six-week series of programs open to the public.

The nationwide programs are made possible by $125,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to the Tribeca Film Institute.

The Tuscaloosa library is one of 49 libraries and one nonprofit organization to each receive a grant of $2,500 for the music series.

"Tuscaloosa knows music, and with the addition of the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, we thought this grant would be a good fit for the community," said Vince Bellofatto, director of communications and public relations for the library.

Bellofatto said the programs for the grant are being developed and will be implemented in 2013.

The Tuscaloosa Public Library is one of only two libraries in Alabama to be awarded the grant. The other state library is the Birmingham Public Library.

According to American Libraries Magazine, the documentary film series will introduce genres of 20th-century American popular music that are connected to the history, culture and geography of the United States.

The six sessions focus on blues and gospel, Broadway, jazz, bluegrass and country, rock 'n' roll,

mambo and hip-hop.

The films in the series are:

n "Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues," Episode I

n "Say Amen, Somebody"

n "Broadway: The American Musical," Episode 2

n "Ken Burns' Jazz," Episode 6

n "International Sweethearts of Rhythm"

n "High Lonesome: The Story of Bluegrass Music"

n "The History of Rock 'n' Roll," Episode 6

n "Latin Music, USA," Episode 1

n "From Mambo to Hip Hop: A South Bronx Tale."

In addition to the $2,500 grant, the library will receive a full set of the DVDs for the series, as well as programming and promotional materials and resources from the American Library Association and the Tribeca Film Institute. …
