Program 1748:  American Folklife Center at Forty – part 2 (November 24, 2016) Week 47

In 1976, the American Folklife Center was created at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. Charged with preserving and presenting American folklife, its collections and events also embrace cultures from every corner of the globe. In our second program marking the AFC 40th anniversary, folklorists Nancy Groce and Steve Winick guide us through the lifework of some dedicated individuals who contributed their song collections to the Center’s extraordinary archives.
