Judith E. Smith

Judith Smith grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. When she moved to Cambridge Massachusetts in 1966 to attend college, she was hoping she could follow Bob Dylan's path and learn songs like "Baby Let me Follow You Down" from Rick Von Schmidt "in the green fields of Harvard University" but they were nowhere in sight. Since 1981, she has taught history and American Studies, first at Boston College, and then at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The Hollywood Reporter listed Becoming Belafonte: Black Artist, Public Radical, her new book, as one of the ten best music books for 2014.Read more about her publications at
