Casual clothing brand Dockers ‘Recognizes’ Little in inspirational storytelling series​

Dr. Roderick Little, director of bands at JSU, is currently featured in the Dockers brand storytelling series “Recognize.” Launched in honor of Black History Month, and extending beyond, Recognize is “about celebrating inspiring community members, contributors and influencers making a difference with their distinct perspectives, style and commitment to finding purpose in their passions.”

As one of the youngest directors of bands in JSU’s history, Little appealed to Dockers due to his contributions to the Sonic Boom of the South and his personal story, according to Will Freeman, project manager.

The business casual clothing leader wanted to know more about Little’s approach to fostering genuine relationships with his students and the importance of youth exploring the musical arts in the Black community.

Little explained that his participation stemmed from the desire to promote his students, the Boom and JSU, through the lens of the HBCU band experience.

The 10 Best Marching Bands in College Football, Ranked

2. “Sonic Boom of the South,” Jackson State

View: https://youtu.be/upJRCBiuxBQ

With a name like the “Sonic Boom of the South,” it’s hard not to include the Jackson State University band on the list. Marching bands in the SWAC are built different. Sorry Coach Prime, football is secondary to the band, and at Jackson State, the high-production routine is one of the most entertaining in the country.
