A lecture and musical celebration with master flutist, educator, and lecturer Galen Abdur-Razzaq on the role and history of jazz music during the Civil Rights Movement. This program is a combined lecture and music performance that opens with a flute prelude performed by Galen. Abdur-Razzaq illustrates how jazz became an advocacy for the Civil Rights Movement, with proceeds from jazz concerts used to finance major events such as the Freedom Rides and the March on Washington in 1963.
