Jazz Education in the Era of Black Lives Matters

As the nation has been confronted with both the Covid-19 pandemic and the amplification of Black Lives Matter movement concerns, educators grapple with not only what but how to teach. This panel will address the state of jazz education in this moment and a radical vision for the future. Please join a lively and informative panel discussion with Nicole Mitchell (University of Pittsburgh), Dr. Fredara Hadley (The Juilliard school), Sean Jones (Peabody Institute), moderated by Jerome Jennings (The Juilliard school).

Our In the Era of Black Lives Matter series is curated and hosted by poet, writer and feminist Naomi Extra and drummer, educator and bandleader Jerome Jennings.
