It was really great to also see the response that people were having to ‘Treme’ ’cause you’re in a vacuum when you’re on a TV show. You see the response online, you read about it and all of that, but actually to be live and have that many thousands of fans come out, it’s really wonderful.

Inga Muscio
The first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States has caused some to call on the United States to ban travel for anyone from the countries in West Africa facing the worst of the Ebola epidemic. That response is understandable. It’s only human to want to protect ourselves and our families.

The blues are important primarily because they contain the cultural expression and the cultural response to blacks in America and to the situation that they find themselves in.
