Description

How Jewish culture shaped American music in the early twentieth century

One Day University presents a series of video lectures recorded in real-time from some of the top minds in the United States. Given by award-winning professors and experts in their field, these recorded lectures dive deep into the worlds of religion, government, literature, and social justice.

The Jewish dominance of American popular music lasted about half a century, from roughly the First World War until roughly the Vietnam War. During that period, Jewish immigrants and their progeny played a decisive role in the shaping of musical taste and in helping to enable a disparate population to cohere around a harmonious culture. From Tin Pan Alley, these songwriters established the Broadway musical and then extended it to the Hollywood musical, installing standards that managed to be immensely popular as well as sublime. The distinctive contribution of Jews to the nation's cultural heritage merits serious analysis as well as retrospective appreciation.
