Africa in the Arts of Philadelphia: Afrocentric Jazz and Fashion Show

Host and Museum Director, Bill Valerio, discusses the concept behind the Afrocentric Jazz and Fashion Show — how it’s taking place in the context of the pandemic and our current need to examine the roots and manifestations of racial injustice. The inspiration for this event is Woodmere's exhibition, Africa in the Arts of Philadelphia, on view at Woodmere through September 7, 2020. Guests include Warren Oree, leader of the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble and co-founder of Lifeline Music Coalition, and fashion designer Julia Turner Lowe.
