This multimedia program blends music, lively cross-cultural stories, research and discussion on coming-of-age with integration in ethnically diverse Florida in a 21st-century dialogue on race in a non-confrontational way.
Featuring Dr. Kitty Oliver and Musical Director Tim Jack, “An Evening of Jazz and Multicolored Memories (A Race and Change Presentation)” is a professionally-performed cabaret performance of inspirational jazz vocals and literary stories tracing the common journey of native-born Americans and immigrants as we adapt to life in a diverse society and social change on a global scale. Dr. Oliver shares personal experiences moving from segregation to integration to multicultural diversity in the international arena drawing on poignant, humorous, revealing reflections as an author, race relations oral historian, national media personality and recording artist who talks about race in a hopeful, healing way. This innovative “Race and Change” program has family-friendly appeal to audiences across races, ethnicities, cultures and generations using music and storytelling to relate history to the present and bringing together people across cultures for an inspirational, entertaining event at the MusicLand, 9601 Miccosukee Road, Tallahassee FL 32309.
