Kansas City Lightning- The Rise and Times of Charlie Parker
Part of the Whitaker Jazz Speaks Series, Dr. Gerald Early hosts author and cultural provocateur Stanley Crouch as he discusses his new book. Copies of Kansas City Lightning will be available for purchase at the event through Left Bank Books. Whitaker Jazz Speaks is a series of three community events exploring the connection between jazz, race, and politics. Thanks to generous support from the Whitaker Foundation, we’re able to offer all these events for FREE!
