**2017 Nash Summer Jazz Workshops**

Freedom Now: Jazz and the Civil Rights Movement

Instructor: Dr. Chris Wells

This workshop will focus on Max Roach and Oscar Brown’s groundbreaking composition We Insist!: The Freedom Now Suite as both a breathtaking piece of art and a window into jazz musicians’ broader involvement in the civil rights movement during the 1960s. We will discuss the Freedom Now Suite’s history and genesis and listen closely to its many striking features with a special emphasis on the work of singer Abbey Lincoln. All learners are welcome!

$30 per student
