Join us for a humorous, highly immersive, and historically accurate hour that uncovers the African-American roots of popular music genres that appear to be free of African-Americans. Utilizing a rich audiovisual presentation, Mark Montgomery French reveals the sonic secrets behind African-Americans’ cultural invisibility within the musical categories they helped define.

San Francisco-native Mark Montgomery French is an award-winning film composer with the group Spiky Blimp, an award-winning Creative Director with 20+ years of presentation experience, and a music culture writer noted for Uppity Music—Your Guide to Unsung Black Departure Albums and the series 28 Days, 28 Black Music Documentaries. He was formerly the co-leader of the ’90s progressive funk band Endangered Species.
