Jazz Talk: "New World A-Coming: Jazz and Civil Rights"

Jazz musician and scholar Loren Schoenberg returns for a new season of Stanford Live's popular Jazz Talks series. Jazz has a long and intertwined history with America's civil rights movement, involving major artists such as Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington. In conversation with special guest, Bay Area bassist, composer, and bandleader Marcus Shelby, Schoenberg will explore this rich history with a historical discussion, visual documents, and music. This talk is part of Stanford Live's 2015-16 Live Context programs on the theme of "Arts and Social Change."
