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.

This event may be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
