More Than Rhythm Listening Party
February 2, 2023
7:00 pm-8:00 pm
As part of Free First Thursday at the CMA and in celebration of Black History Month, enjoy a funk and soul listening party with DJ Lady Marauder spinning vinyl records that were the backdrop and heartbeat of the Black Film Renaissance of the 1960s and ’70s.
She will be joined by More Than Rhythm series host Dr. Birgitta Johnson, who will talk with the community about specific tracks and films that reflected the blossoming of Black dance music genres of that era and the soul aesthetics that propelled the music to the forefront of Black American culture and American social politics as a whole.
FREE. Part of More Than Rhythm’s month-long Celebration of Soul.
