What are the blues?

Blues legend Willie Dixon probably had the best definition when he said, “the blues are the true facts of life expressed in words and song, inspiration, feeling, and understanding.”

In celebration of International Blues Day on Aug. 5, 2017, The College Today talked with the CofC’s chief diversity officer, Rénard Harris, about how the blues helped to shape his life. The harmonica virtuoso also took time out of his busy day to play the harmonica.
