Jazz and the Civil Rights Movement
Master Flautist and lecturer Galen Abdur-Razzaq takes you through music from the turn of the century to present day, highlighting various artists, their music, their influence on the evolution of jazz, and their struggles. This music-infused lecture will illustrate how jazz became an advocacy for the Civil Rights Movement, with proceeds from concerts used to finance major events such as the Freedom Rides and the 1963 March on Washington.
