Jazz in the Fight for Civil Rights
Join us on Feb. 17 at 4 p.m. in Waveland Hall for Jazz in the Fight for Civil Rights. The evening will feature University of Iowa’s, Dr. Damani Phillips. Dr Phillips’ presentation invites us to view the contribution of jazz to the Civil Rights movement through a combination of live performance, spoken remarks and visual presentation. This unique program focuses on jazz music’s alignment with the African-American fight for civil rights and the backstory behind that creation. The evening is sponsored by the Board of Music and Fine Arts in collaboration with the Anti-Racism Committee.
