African American Lecture Series: “The Musical Impact of the Second Great Migration”

November 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The significant impact of The Second Great Migration (1940-1970) on the American musical landscape cannot be overstated. The sounds of this time provided launching pads for multiple genres of music that dominate our current playlists. In particular, today’s Soul and Jazz Fusion genres are closely tied to the Gospel, Jazz, and R&B foundations that were laid during the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s. Minus2 will take listeners on a journey through an array of soul and jazz fusion musical styles, highlighting a combination of original and popular songs that pay homage to pioneers that blazed musical trails during the Second Great Migration.
