A history lesson in the nature of music, and how it can bring people together, came to the Marathon County Public Library Wednesday.
A Madison film director presented a screening of his documentary "The Librarian and the Banjo." The documentary is about the life of a music librarian born in Milwaukee, who in the 1950's brought to light the colorful musical culture of slaves, including the banjo.
"The banjo is a symbol, a great symbol, of the biracial musical heritage of this country," said Jim Carrier, the director of the film.
The film is the first event for "Noteworthy" series, a monthly program on music and origins of musical genres.
