UGMA in the Middle of It
This chapter highlights the role of the Underground Musicians Association (UGMA) in the Watts uprising. It explains that the cultural resurgence and growing politicization of the community brought about by the uprising not only reinforced UGMA's purpose but also presented it with more tasks, more members, and a growing circle of supporters. Much of this was expressed in the association's music, particularly the first recording sessions (1968-69) which codified their work in the 1960s of preserving the African American heritage, pushing the boundaries of that music, and reflecting the concerns and issues of their community.
