Episode Detail: The Devil's Music: 1920s Jazz - Culture Shock

Conclusion. “The Devil's Music: 1920s Jazz” recalls early jazz's struggle for acceptance. “This music had people moving in ways that were not considered polite,” says historian Ann Douglas. The hour follows jazz from Storyville, New Orleans' red-light district, to Chicago speakeasies and then to Harlem. It also examines the racial aspect of the controversy and looks at the similar reaction to gangsta rap. (It's something “different coming in to upset the status quo,” says rapper Chuck D.) Dion Graham narrates.
