Jazz Jam for Justice
October 10 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm EDT
Jazz, a uniquely American musical phenomenon, has historically narrated the tales of Black oppression, indignation, and outright murder. From John Coltrane’s “Alabama” and Nina Simone’s “Mississippi Goddam”, to Billie Holiday’s rendition of “Strange Fruit”, jazz communicates the plight of Black Americans who fought perilously for survival and recognition as human beings. Nevertheless, jazz continues to be a music of love, fellowship, and inclusivity. In the full spirit of the music, we come together to remember our roots, acknowledge the present, and hope for better days.
This event may be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
