American Folklife Center Releases Story Map of Chicago Blues and Jazz

The American Folklife Center released a brand new Story Map, "Chicago Blues and Jazz," that tours nine different music hubs in the city that were documented during the AFC's 1977 Chicago Ethnic Arts Project. Folklife Specialist Michelle Stefano used audio-visual items from that project to create the map, which features famous places and people like the Kingston Mines or Buddy Guy and Junior Wells.
