Historian Emily Bingham traces the origins and permutations of the state song, from its performances across the continent beginning in the 1850s, through its widespread international renown as the state's "brand," to its 21st-century reassessment--a resonant changing emblem of America's original sin whose blood-drenched shadow haunts us still.

Introduced by A&S Dean David Owen, Q&S moderated by Brandon McCormack, followed by a booksigning.
