Broadcast: February 3, 2019 at 4pm
A one-hour program of jazz music, exploring the black-pride movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Perfect for Black History Month (February).
As the black-pride movement gained momentum in the late 1960s and early 1970s, an increasing number of jazz artists began to incorporate the message into their music. We’ll hear records made by Lou Donaldson, Gil Scott-Heron, Freddie Roach, Jackie McLean, and others. From the "Night Lights Classic Jazz Series". Hosted by David Brent Johnson.
