Jumpin' Juba Band
Hand-made music, presented live and in real time. In the words of Steve Hurl, the band’s leader, Jumpin’ Juba is New Orleans swamp-rock, classic boogie-woogie, folk, Memphis rock & roll, and a playful use of everything from calypso to country stirred into the one blue stew.

Southgate hosts this 10-week class entitled The European Lost and Found – Displaced Persons after World War II In the late 1940’s “DP” was a term to describe Europeans who didn’t seem to belong anywhere. Thin, tired, wearing donated clothing, they waited in crowded “camps,” mostly former army barracks, assigned by nationality. The DPs could not return to their home countries, but it seemed no nation was willing to take them. Eventually over 400,000 displaced persons came to the US. We will focus on stories of individual DPs as well as look at high-level policy and how powerful Americans like Truman, Eisenhower, and Eleanor Roosevelt worked to help the displaced. David Nevard is a retired IT professional. REQUIRED BOOK: DPs: Europe’s Displaced Persons, 1945–1951, by Mark Wyman, Cornell Press. ISBN10:0801485428. All Southgate resident are admitted to the on-campus classes free of charge.
