Abstract

The Curriculum Guide is a comprehensive resource for educators seeking to use LeRoi Jones's classic book Blues People in a classroom setting. The Guide includes summaries of each individual chapter and a listing of critical themes embedded in the chapter, a list of discussion questions, and a supplemental bibliography featuring reviews and essays on Blues People. The Guide was funded by a grant awarded to scholar Vincent Stephens by Bucknell University's Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender (CSREG) in the summer of 2012.
