Race & American Memory | The Langston Hughes Project

November 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

Following our November Community Dinner, Grace Farms Foundation will present The Langston Hughes Project, a concert performance of “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz”, one of Hughes’ literary masterworks. Led by trumpeter Ron McCurdy, The Langston Hughes Project embodies the poet’s testimony to the struggle for artistic and social freedom at home and abroad at the beginning of the 1960s. Through this special event, Grace Farms Foundation joins in commemorating the 50th anniversary of Hughes’ death.
Race & American Memory is an ongoing free series launched in 2015 examining race and its impact on American identity and moral integrity. Through the program, the Foundation examines the ways in which Americans comprehend and recall U.S. history.
