John Scruggs

John Scruggs was born into slavery in Virginia in 1855. A newsreel crew visited his cabin in 1928 and filmed Scruggs playing banjo for his wife and grandchildren.

This footage contains the only known recording of his music, and it survives thanks to the preservation efforts of the University of South Carolina.
