Workshop: Jazz and Democracy and Why
Wednesday, October 11th, 2017
We examine the complementarity of jazz and democracy as embodying the core American value of freedom. Participants explore the history of jazz in America, including the impact of slavery, racial oppression, and socio-economic oppression; and the transformation of European music and political ideas into distinctively American forms in jazz and American democracy.
