CANCELED - Bessie, Billie, Nina: Pioneering Women in Jazz

March 20, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Bing Studio

A power trio of vocalists backed by an all-female band pays tribute to a flagship of civil rights progress that was launched by the formative work of three 20th-century African American women jazz artists. The anthemic songs of Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, and Nina Simone defied social norms and today continue to inspire a generational movement for greater equality and selfempowerment for women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community.
