About this Event

The Museum’s annual community program, The People’s Holiday features six-time Grammy award-winning bassist, composer, and educator Christian McBride in a digital performance inspired by his social justice-focused album, The Movement Revisited: A Musical Portrait of Four Icons. The 30-minute concert of jazz and poetry will feature performances of students from The Julliard School and a poetry reading by award winning poet, Evie Shockley. The concert will conclude with a conversation between Christian McBride and Dr. Dwandalyn Reece, the Museum's Associate Director for Curatorial Affairs and Curator of Music and Performing Arts. This concert honors Dr. Kings’ commitment to racial equality, justice, and service.
