Full Summary: Join Student Diversity Programs and the African American Student Union (AASU) in celebrating the music born from the Black experience.

Throughout history the Black experience in America has directly influenced the music born from the community. Expression through the use of voice and instruments has provided Blacks with the means to release joy, pain, hurt and agony, while at the same time becoming a powerful medium, which is heard by both those who can identify with it and those who aren’t willing to, but are quick to judge and condemn it. Chris Crenshaw, a trombonist with Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, DJ Lynnee Denise of WildSeed Cultural Group and YaNi of YaNi & The Peace People will talk about the influence of music in their life and the aligning of history with music.
