Face the Music: Confronting Racism with American Music
Saturday, October 30 @2pm
Featuring TRP panelists Joe Seamons, Liana Green, and special guests.
Moderated by Valerie Diaz-Leroy.
American music contains powerful lessons for understanding systemic oppression in our country. With more people waking up to the difficult realities of American culture, understanding and healing are some of the main ingredients for creating a more just and compassionate society. The stories of early jazz masters provide a valuable jumping off point to discuss how American music can provide new awareness, which can help us do better moving forward. Our panelists will engage the audience in a discussion of how systemic racism crosses paths with music and tools for musicians and enthusiasts to create change.
Join us for an in-depth discussion on these topics—and so much more (Saturday, October 30, @2pm live on facebook and youtube).
