Jorge Arévalo Mateus PhD’13 and Bill Carbone MA’07 are executive directors at The Association for Cultural Equity/Alan Lomax Archives and TeachRock/Rock and Roll Forever Foundation, respectively, located in New York City. The two organizations announced a partnership. The Association For Cultural Equity in conjunction with the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress is providing content to TeachRock to be utilized in creating lesson plans and other teaching resources. The cultural materials collected by Alan Lomax, one of the most celebrated folklore collectors and musicologists in America’s history, provide an engaging and powerfully personal basis for looking at history through the music that past generations took joy and comfort in, stretching back to the Colonial period and beyond. The two become friends as graduate students in Wesleyan’s ethnomusicology program.
