Aupres de ma blonde

Don't miss Dr. Allen Ballard-- who kicks off the Fall schedule on Feb. 2-- accompanying himself to Aupres de ma blonde on YouTube. And while you're at it, preview some of the gospel songs on his new CD, "Early This Morning."

UAlbany has a profile of the beloved faculty member on it's "People" page. And if the Philadelphia of Ballard's new novel piques your interest, you may wish to read One More Day's Journey, a memoir of his family's Great Migration from rural South Carolina to the mean streets of the City of Brotherly Love.
