Paper should center on her contribution to the development of jazz. Paper must contain some
information about the music, not just names and places, citing specific pieces and references to lyrics
thus relating information about the music. paper must be presented in scholarly form and must
demonstrate accepted forms of quotations, references and source citations. Longform footnotes and
bibliography are required. Turabian Chicagostyle should be used for citations and footnotes. No
single citation for a paragraph. Teacher will thoroughly review bibliography and sources! Paper will
be graded on quality of research, grammar, content, style and organization.
Books that I am using are:
Jazz Gary Giddons & Scott DeVeaux
Bessie Smith Jackie Kay
Bessie Chris Albertson
The History of Jazz Ted Gioia
Blues Legends and Black Feminism Angela Y. Davis
Please use quality internet sources or peer review sources if necessary with exact citation.
