Bessie, Billie, & Nina: Pioneering Women in Jazz

March 19 @ 9:00 PM PDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on March 19, 2022 at 9:00 PM

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 self-empowerment for women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community.
