Songs on the Line: Music, Politics, and Humanitarian Crisis on the US/Mexico Border, featuring Dr. Robert Neustadt of Northern Arizona University
How can we tell the story of undocumented migration on the Arizona/Mexico border? The talk will describe Professor Neustadt’s trips to the border with students, his journey from academic to academic-activist-singer-songwriter, and how ‘songs on the line’ can be vehicles to teach awareness and compassion about this catastrophic and often misunderstood humanitarian crisis. This program is a Campus Read tie-in event as well as part of WVU Diversity Week.
