Jazz and Race

Any jazz musician knows and has to deal with the issues of Black and White as they relate to the music and its history. Just watch any episode of Ken Burns’ Jazz documentary and you’ll feel the heavy hand of race relations in jazz.

In order to address this matter seriously and appropriately, the Education Department of SFJAZZ presents “JAZZ AND RACE: BLACK, WHITE, AND BEYOND,” a historical national symposium on the topic of race in jazz with some of today’s most distinguished authors, scholars, historians and musicians. The three-day symposium and dialogue panel will be held in San Francisco from Friday, March 30 through Sunday, April 1, 2001 in conjunction with SFJAZZ Spring Season 2001.
