Lecture Description

This lecture considers the special relationship the Beatles had with the US South, from even before their first visit to the region in 1964, through their career as the biggest musical act on the planet, to their post-Beatles solo careers. That relationship has much to reveal about the changing nature of the region in the 1960s, but also about how the U.S. South has been understood and misunderstood by those living far beyond its borders.
