Learning History Through Art And Music

History is taught in countless ways — but the most common methodology tends to be via momentous events like wars, natural disasters, and political leadership changes. But what about art and music?

Arts often reflect the time period in which they were created and can provide insight on what was happening and what people were feeling.

That’s the premise by which Marcie Hutchinson teaches history — through art and music. She was a member of the history faculty at ASU and taught "Jazz from A to Z" for a dozen years there.

She joined The Show talk about the intersection of art, music and history.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
