Join Harlem Stage and Jooksi as they use music as a springboard for dynamic dialogue through a participant driven listening session exploring the singular and intersecting themes of blackness, joy and chaos. We will cover artists like Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Parliament, D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and more as we collaboratively generate a communal soundtrack for Black Joy in the Hour of Chaos. The listening session will be complemented by food and drink and guided by ethnomusicologist and visiting associate professor of Jazz Studies at Oberlin College, Dr. Fredara M. Hadley.
