A Black History Special - We Shall Overcome: Civil Rights Jazz

SUNDAY FEBRUARY 26 AT 9 PM

There was a strong relationship between jazz and civil rights in 20th-century America; musicians and many critics as well were advocates for equal rights for African-Americans, and jazz provided a cultural bridge between blacks and whites that helped to work as a force for integration. Jazzy 88.9 WCSU presents this Black History special on Sunday, February 26 at 9 PM. This program includes music from Nina Simone, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Max Roach.
