Clark Aided Blacks on 'Bandstand'? Not Always - The Root

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
When American Bandstand started broadcasting nationally in 1957, it had to avoid being tainted by the anti-rock and roll protests taking place across the country. City councils from Jersey City to Santa Cruz to San Antonio had banned rock performances, and radio stations in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Denver, Lubbock and Cincinnati refused to play rock and roll. The fear was in large part fueled by concerns about racial mixing, and on that front, Bandstand was indeed groundbreaking. Clark's show put African-American music and performers on television every day. While it featured a sanitized version of rock and roll, with white teen idols such as Bobby Rydell and Frankie Avalon, American Bandstand also hosted black vocal groups such as the Coasters and the Impressions; early girl groups such as the Shirelles; Motown artists such as Mary Wells and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles; and R&B and soul pioneers such as James Brown and the Famous Flames, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin. Clark brought African-American performers to national television in an era when such performances were rare. American Bandstand also helped invent the demographic that still dominates popular culture: teenagers. It was the first national television program aimed squarely at teens, and it laid the groundwork for the baby boom generation, defining what teens listened to, how they danced and what they wore, ate and drank. Clark was well aware that advert...

HORSE'S MOUTH: Natto vs. Cheese - The Rafu Shimpo

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
The keynote speaker was Robin Toma. As is the case with most keynote speakers at functions such as these, he talked too long. By the way, his background record indicated that he attended UC Santa Cruz. I wonder if he knows my son, who attended the same university before he was accepted by the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. I had hoped to run into some people I knew, but there were less than a handful of those fitting into that category. One was Jack Kunitomi, who no doubt was the oldest person in attendance. He’s 96 years old. I met Jack when I joined the staff of the Heart Mountain camp newspaper. When I met him, I never realized what his being 10 years older than I really meant. Now, 70 years later, I know what our age difference during camp days means in the year 2012. Oh yeah, the other surprising thing was that Norm Mineta was in attendance. I say surprising because the Japanese community of San Jose also held a Day of Remembrance gathering in their Japantown. Being from San Jose, it would seem more fitting for Mineta to attend their Day of Remembrance and not the one in Los Angeles. Enuff said. — Folks who follow my chatter know that I lived and worked in Tokyo during the early ’60s. In writing about my life in Tokyo, I frequently mentioned how tough it was to adjust to many facets of living there. However, I don’t think I ever mentioned my experiences in learning how to drive a car in Tokyo traffic. However, since the person who hired me to move to Tokyo gav...

Donya Feuer, Modern-Dance Choreographer, Dies at 77

Wed, Nov 16, 2011
Contemporary Theater of Dance-Drama-Music, later called Dance Studio. For Mark Franko, a dance scholar and professor at the University of California at Santa Cruz, their role in the 1960s dance avant-garde was as important and influential as the better-known formal experiments of the Judson Dance Theater. “Sanasardo and Feuer prefigure aspects of the Tanztheater of Pina Bausch, who worked with them when she first came to America at age 18,” Professor Franko wrote in his book “Excursion for Miracles.” “Their work, like that of Bausch, was intricately autobiographical and surrealistic.” Later, when Ms. Bausch became a famed choreographer, Professor Franko said she told Ms. Feuer and Mr. Sanasardo, “I only know that if I had never met you, everything would have been different.” In 1960, Ms. Bausch appeared with them in “Phases of Madness,” which all three choreographed and in which they each evoked a different phase of madness. The collaboration with Mr. Sanasardo ended when Ms. Feuer accepted an invitation to teach in Sweden in 1963. After choreographing stage productions for the Royal Dramatic Theater, she joined its staff as a choreographer in 1966 and later as a theatrical director. She also started a dance company and worked for the first time with Bergman in 1971, before he moved to Germany. Beginning in 1984, after Bergman returned to Sweden, she worked with him on 17 theater, film and television projects. In addition to her son, Ms. Feuer is survived by her companion, Kyra Matustik.
