Be part of an important research study on rock and roll music and the Civil Rights Movement

Are you between 63 and 85 years of age?

Did you listen to rock and roll music as a teenager or young adult?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to participate in an exciting research study on rock and roll music and racial attitudes during the 1950s and ‘60s.

The purpose of this research study is to determine whether rock and roll music affected perspectives on racial politics among teenagers and young adults during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, and if those perspectives have changed through the years. If you are eligible, you will be asked to meet with the researcher for a one- to two-hour-long email or audio-taped interview. There is no cost to you in order to participate.

Adults between 63 and 85 years of age who grew up in the United States, and who identify as either white (Caucasian/European-American) or black (African-American) are eligible.

This study is being conducted by Beth Fowler, a Senior Lecturer in the Irvin D. Reid Honors College at Wayne State University.

Please submit inquiries to oralhistory@wayne.edu for more information.

To speak to those people is no more difficult than contacting Sally Omally Schroder on Facebook. MANY of the rock and Roll scene people still are around and meet frequently at local gigs. You can easily run into CREEM's first photographer or actual players.

Sally handles social media for Jim McCarty, and has her finger on the pulse - https://www.facebook.com/sally.o.schroeder

And she's one of the loveliest people I have ever known.

I was a semi-regular there, usually for the Sunday night jam sessions. Work has gotten in the way of that.

I first met Sally when her foster daughter began playing in The Miracle League of Michigan. She then recognized me one night at the Goose and we became good pals.

Have you ever seen her house fully decorated for Halloween? She's more than a bit obsessed. :horns

If you don't like her, you're probably unlikable yourself.

We don't agree on much, but this is another one!
