Thanks to Our Sponsors

The Archives of African American Music and Culture (AAAMC) would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support of Reclaiming the Right to Rock: Black Experiences in Rock Music.

Indiana University's New Frontiers Program

This conference is partially supported by Indiana University's New Frontiers Program, funded by Lilly Endowment, and administered by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research. Now in it's fifth year, the New Frontiers program supports innovative projects, workshops, performances, and visiting scholars and artists. Since its inception, the goal of the program has been to help Indiana University faculty members to expand their work into disciplinary or interdisciplinary frontiers that promise new insights into the human condition or pursue innovative directions in artistic creativity.
