Lunch and Jazz - Black, Brown & Beige
The High Point Public Library and High Point Museum in collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center will be streaming Jazz concerts from the Lincoln Center for the public's listening pleasure. The audience is encouraged to bring their own lunch as lunch will not be provided. Come listen, network, collaborate, and celebrate.
Two of music’s most legendary names are the bandleaders Duke Ellington and Count Basie. In this show, we highlight some of their most extraordinary repertoire. We delve into the beloved swinging classics of Count Basie’s bands, and then move into Duke Ellington’s magnum opus: Black, Brown, and Beige, a concert work that challenged America’s notions of what Jazz composition could be and what it could represent.
Monday, Feb. 10, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Introduction to the Freedmen's Bureau Records

It provided relief but also assisted newly manumitted slaves with labor, legal, educational, and family matters. A comprehensive indexing project has just been completed. Marcellaus Joiner will demonstrate the value of the records and explain how to search, interpret, and apply them to your research.
