Event Description

Prof. Lowenthal and Dr. Cartwright will discuss the complexities between music, politics, aesthetics, and activism surrounding the Civil Rights Movement and the impact of these complexities on the Jazz Musicians of the time. Illustrated through the music and lyrics of such prominent artists as Louis Armstrong, Max Roach, Abby Lincoln, Nina Simone, Charles Mingus and others, our lecturers will draw on their personal relationships with many of the musicians. Each speaker will reflect on one of the most important periods in American History. The lecture will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A Period.
