Newark's late 1960s story is often told through the interweaving of histories of black power and violence. By examining events too often overshadowed by the great attention paid to the uprising of 1967 - including the first National Conference on Black Power held in Newark days after the "riot," Martin Luther King's visit to Newark in March 1968, and the aftermath of his assassination just days later -  this class offers new historical visions of Newark, black power, and the legacy of the 1960s.

Between 1946 and 1957, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong teamed up to create some of the most timeless duets in the history of recorded sound. To celebrate Fitzgerald's upcoming centennial, Ricky Riccardi, Director of Research Collections for the Louis Armstrong House Museum, will take attendees on a guided tour of Armstrong and Fitzgerald's greatest moments, from their earliest Decca recordings for Milt Gabler to their Norman Granz-produced jam sessions backed by Oscar Peterson's quartet to their timeless take on the Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Riccardi will provide context and background to these seminal recordings and will share rare audio of interviews with Armstrong and Fitzgerald discussing their work together. Any fan of jazz, of vocals, of swinging, of scatting and of just plain good music should not miss this event!?
