Dollars & $ense–The Biz of Black Music
900AM WURD-Philadelphia uses the occasion of Black Music Month 2014 to examine the influence African-Americans have had on the music industry; the importance of proactively protecting intellectual property; the pitfalls to avoid as a working musician; and the variety of music industry jobs that exist outside of performing.
Professor Tonya M. Evans, who teaches intellectual property, wills and trusts, property and entertainment, joins in this engaging conversation with an esteemed interdisciplinary panel on Monday, June 30th at 6:00 PM at the Painted Bride Arts Center. Other panelists include:
- Kenny Gamble, international music industry icon of Gamble Huff Records
- Ivan Barias, producer/songwriter and president of the Philadelphia Chapter of The Recording Academy
