New exhibit at Alexander Black House looks at African influence on regional music


Thursday, Nov. 10, 6 to 7 p.m. — “Black Fiddlers” documentary screening. “Black Fiddlers” traces the personal and family stories of violin players of African descent in New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, Missouri, and as far as Oregon during the Indian Wars and the Gold Rush. Inspired by the legacy of Joe and Odell Thomson, director Eduardo Montes-Bradley reached out to musicians Rhiannon Giddens and Justin Robinson from The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and old-time fiddler Earl White, to reconstruct 300 years of Black music with the help of local historians, academics, and award-winning authors like Kip Lornell and John J. Sullivan. Learn more at
