  • 100% Completed
American Patchwork was a major project that provided rich glimpses into post-Bicentennial multicultural America. Beginning in 1978, Alan Lomax and his team shot ethnographic film and video footage in Mississippi, Arizona, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The result was five films aired by the Public Broadcasting Service in 1991: “Land Where the Blues Began,” “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now,” “Cajun Country,” “Appalachian Journey,” and “Dreams and Songs of the Noble Old.”
