6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join the Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Outreach as we host Ronald McCurdy and his presentation of the multimedia, orchestrated jazz production of the Langston Hughes Project. By way of videography, this concert performance links the words and music of Hughes’ poetry to topical images of Ask Your Mama’s people, places, and events, and to the works of the visual artists Langston Hughes admired or collaborated with most closely over the course of his career.
Dr. McCurdy will present this work, along with a moderated Q&A steeped in historical and current justice movements and the Black diaspora.
Open to the public
