Final Topic Essay: 20th Century Disability

20 Oct

For my final topic, I will be focusing on disability and artists in the 20th century. Musical composers such as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, and Django Reinhart are the main three that I will focus on. I will draw some comparisons between these musicians and the musicians we have covered in class. My essay will also cross over to the aspects of genius, and the different points we have discussed in class. My hope will be to link these examples of genius back into society’s view of disabled composers. The three musicians I have picked represent a very talented array of individuals, and I think it will be very interesting to acknowledge and discuss their achievements.

  1. Graham, this sound great! Please be sure you spend very little of your space on biography and focus on thematic connections instead.
