February 2021
  Black History Month
  • Langston Hughes’s Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz
  • Featuring the Ron McCurdy
  • 5:30 pm
  • Presented by SCC, CGC & MCC
  • Register/RSVP here

A multimedia virtual presentation of Langston Hughes’ kaleidoscopic Jazz poem suite, “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz.” (Hughes’ homage to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s). By way of videography, this recorded 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. Together the words, sounds, and images recreate a magical moment in our cultural history, which bridges the Harlem Renaissance, the post World War II Beat writers’ coffeehouse jazz poetry world, and the looming Black Arts performance explosion of the 1960s.

Dr. Ron McCurdy, creator of the project will introduce the project and be available for a question and answer period after the event.
