SFJAZZ Listening Party w/ author, educator, activist, and Civil Rights icon Angela Davis, in conversation with SFJAZZ Founder and Executive Artistic Director Randall Kline.

Free to SFJAZZ Members

The event kicks off a weeklong «Jazz & Social Justice» concert series at the SFJAZZ Center featuring Jaimeo Brown Transcendence, Samora Pinderhughes, Paula West, Terence Blanchard and John Santos.

Lineup: sfjazz.org/calendar/?month=4.2018&series=6534

There have been songs of protest and commentary on social injustice in America since the time of the Civil War, from Negro spirituals to John Coltrane’s “Alabama” to Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright.” This listening party will look back at the history of American protest music as well as the week's performances that encompass work songs of the imprisoned, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the music of resistance born in the shared cultural lineage of Puerto Rico and Africa.

ABOUT SFJAZZ LISTENING PARTIES

Step into the SFJAZZ “living room” and hear artists and tastemakers spinning their favorite recordings while in conversation with SFJAZZ Founder and Executive Artistic Director Randall Kline. Listening Parties offer listeners the chance to get behind-the- scenes and hear about music from the artist’s perspective. The format is an on-stage conversation in the Robert N. Miner Auditorium, accompanied by the artist’s pick of recorded, and sometimes live, excerpts. The conversation closes with questions from the audience followed by a reception with the artist.
