McDaniel, Director of Jazz Studies in Ohio State’s School of Music with a joint appointment in African-American and African Studies, and Koritha Mitchell, an English professor and author of Living with Lynching, discuss the many influences at play in the works on view in our fall exhibition Blues for Smoke.
