Professor David Pimentel to speak at Jazz Festival – Feb. 22-23, 2019

February 20, 2019

Professor David Pimentel to speak at Jazz Festival – Feb. 22-23, 2019

Professor Pimentel has been asked to reprise his popular lecture “The Blues and the Rule of Law:  Musical Expressions of the Failure of Justice” at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival this year.

In the lecture, Professor Pimentel demonstrates, with music clips, how the Blues emerged from African American communities, inspired at least in part by society’s failure to afford them access to justice or the rule of law.  The music, of course, highlighted the injustices for the white audiences it ultimately reached. At the same time, because reform came through extra-legal means (the speech and music of protest), the Blues also glorified the character of the outlaw, who flouts corrupt and unresponsive legal authority. He demonstrates how the Blues, by lamenting the failure of legal institutions and lionizing the outlaw who defies them, played a role in bringing U.S. society closer to the rule of law.

The lecture will be offered twice:  Friday Feb. 22 at 10:45 am at Ag Sci 106, and on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 9:30 am in the Borah Theater.
