JusticeAid returns with
Matthew Witaker on Tuesday, October 15, at The Jazz Standard
The Baylor Project on Tuesday, October 22, at The Hamilton
This fall, we’re doing something different.
In order to keep delivering vital support to key change-makers and to expand our calls to action against racism, poverty, mass incarceration, and injustice, we are presenting two fabulous jazz concerts in support of our own work at JusticeAid.
We’re rockin’ justice.
We hope you can attend one or both shows — Matthew Whitaker in New York City on October 15th, and the Grammy-nominated Baylor Project in Washington, DC on October 22nd — to hear great music and learn about JusticeAid’s 2020 Voter Suppression initiative and our continuing mission to eradicate injustice through the arts.
Whitaker summoned the ghosts of Larry Young and Oscar Peterson. A student of great piano masters, he has quickly identified the buttons that resonate with a crowd looking for a good time.
[On the Baylor Project] Steeped in the heart and soul of jazz…innovative…an undeniable force.
Please give generously, get involved, and thank you! We can’t do it without you.
