Jazz 88.3 will honor Black History month by highlighting how African-Americans have created and advanced the art form of Jazz. Each year KSDS chooses a significant aspect of African-American culture and this year’s focus is the Harlem Renaissance. Harlem has inspired countless jazz pieces but also significant literature and art. Listen every weekday, all month long, for a different historical aspect of the cultural mecca of Harlem. The segments can also be visualized at Jazz88.org. A look at Harlem’s history every weekday during Black History Month, only on KSDS, Jazz 88.3. Click here to view all the segments.
