Featuring Dr. Ridley
Dr. Ridley will reflect on the interconnections and long history of jazz music and protest. In particular, he will examine the many connections between jazz and protest during the Civil Rights movement, and will talk about his collaborations with musicians committed to African American freedom and American democracy. Dr. Ridley will also discuss his role as an educator and the benefits of jazz education to the arts and American society.
