association for cultural equity video collection

i have to admit first of all that i found this on the reliably tasteful music blog aquarium drunkard, but since it deals with MFOA's spiritual grandfather alan lomax, i had to do a post about it. the association for cultural equity is lomax's legacy foundation, created to continue his mission to "explore and preserve the world's expressive traditions with humanistic commitment and scientific engagement".


the ACE's online archive contains tens of thousands of photos, videos and audio recordings collected during lomax's travels. here a couple of cool videos from the appalachia section.







these videos give you taste of the treasures contained in this online archive. spend the morning digging through the roots of the modern folk music of america.
