The Ballad of Arizona: Our First Hundred Years – Kingman

April 29 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

| Free

Similar to NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” but with and Arizona twist, this program uses music, storytelling and live radio-style newscasts to present important but often neglected events in Arizona history. The “Hoosiers”-like story of a Miami, AZ High School basketball team comprised of the sons of Mexican-American mine workers who won the state championship in 1951, and Buffalo soldiers stationed near Nogales who engaged with Mexican regiments in a border clash, are among the compelling stories told.

Jay Craváth, Ph.D. is a composer, writer, and scholar in the field of music and Indigenous studies. Dr. Craváth crafts programs from these interests into interactive discussions that include stories, musical performance, and illustrations/photography. His most recent publication is: The Mohave Book for Little Ones. Dr. Craváth is the Cultural Director for the Chemehuevi Indian Tribe.
