Cultural Historian Albert Murray was a prolific writer and public intellectual whose immense body of work provided the framework for discussions of US culture, national identity, the blues and jazz. How does Murray’s work shape such far-ranging discussions? How is Murray’s theory on culture relevant today? In what ways do the meanderings of Murray's protagonist Scooter offer insights into globalization? Today’s special edition of Trading Fours, a Tribute to Albert Murray is a conversation with “Murrayites” those of us who worked closely with Murray and maintained close ties through the final days of his life. Join us on Sunday, November 17, 2013, at 9PM Eastern for a conversation of culture, jazz, blues, literature and the stylization of it all with Paul Devlin, Roberta Maguire, Greg Thomas, Lauren Walsh and your host, Jackie Modeste, as we re-member the man who who made us think through complexities.
