Jazz & the Civil Rights Movement
Thursday, October 21
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
This presentation chronicles jazz from the turn of the century to present day and highlights various artists, their music, their influence on the evolution of jazz, and their struggles. In addition, it illustrates how jazz became an advocacy for the Civil Rights Movement, with proceeds from jazz concerts used to finance major events such as the Freedom Rides and the March on Washington in 1963. This lecture is infused with music demonstrations from Galen Abdur-Razzaq and will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A.
