Fats Waller – Music & Film “Stormy Weather”
This event will focus on the profound cultural impact of prolific Black composer, Fats Waller. We will also discuss the highly popular 1943 film he performed in, Stormy Weather. In particular, the lecture will illustrate the long-lasting and long-respected nature of Waller’s bountiful discography. We will begin with a discussion of Waller’s life history, which is rich with anecdotes that clearly highlight both the nature of the man himself, as well as the deeply difficult world in which he lived.

Register below for this, or any of the other lectures in the Hannan After Dark: Listening B(l)ack Media Series.
