Drexel University Jazztet: An Evening of Music in Exploration of Another Brooklyn

Friday, March 9, 2018

7:00 PM-9:00 PM

Author Jacqueline Woodson’s character August reflected, “If we had had jazz, would we have survived differently? If we had known our story was a blues…would we have lifted our heads, said to each, This is a memory…?” Join us for the last of three One Book events at Drexel University as the Jazztet, under the direction of ethnomusicologist Dr. George Starks, explores the social and cultural aspects of August’s coming of age through music. Light refreshments will be served and there will be opportunities to share thoughts about how this story intersects with the music we listen to this evening!
Free and open to the public
