The High Notes of Jazz Roxbury: Women in Jazz
March 14 * 7 – 9pm
Haley House Bakery Cafe
Free * Seating limited
Join Discover Roxbury with co-presenters Haley House Bakery Cafe and Jazz Boston, for an exciting primer sharing the herstories of women in jazz. Northeastern University scholar Dr. Emmet Price leads the discussion and will share contributions of several jazz women, involved with jazz since its inception, but not as well-known or trumpeted, so to speak, as their male jazz counterparts. It’s recommended you come early, grab a seat, order dinner, and be prepared to partake in the fifth and final discussion in the speaker series focusing on the impact and role of women jazz musicians during the era ending “jim crow” segregation and rising civil rights activism.
