WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Jazz singer Maggie Brown celebrates the work of her late father - musician, playwright, poet and civil rights activist Oscar Brown, Jr. - with an evening of jazz music and spoken word. A Legacy of Jazz and Poetry explores Oscar Brown, Jr.'s illustrious career - from his impact on the Black arts movement to his timeless influence on today's young hip-hop artists. Maggie Brown is joined by a talented ensemble of artists including Keith Kelley of the Funky Wordsmyths, scholar and poet Tyehimba Jess, hip-hop artist Jeff Baraka and her sister, vocalist Africa Brown.
