“A Great Day in Harlem” is the first film in WHPK and 59th St. Jazz’s “Reel Jazz” film series. This documentary chronicles the 1958 editorial shoot that became a historic jazz event based on a photo taken on 126th Street—magnificent for the sweep of history represented by those men and women standing between two stoops of a brownstone, many of them surrendering their lives to the pursuit of creative excellence.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with several jazz hosts from WHPK.
Free and open to the public.
Presented by the Global Voices Lecture Series, WHPK, and 59th St. Jazz.
