Led by Daniel Western, director of jazz studies at Miles College, this week hear Milestones perform hot jazz from the 1920s, when the quintessential American art form underscored dancing and fun on Birmingham’s west side, along with “Tuxedo Junction” and other circa 1940 big band classics.

Part of the Collective Perspectives 2008 series.

About the series: 

Vulcan Park and Museum is proud to present Collective Perspectives 2008 in honor of Black History Month, a series of non-traditional programs designed to educate, entertain, and enlighten participants on the cultures that have made Birmingham the culturally diverse, compassionate and flourishing city that we are today. The Terminal is happy to be serving as a partner in presenting this series.

Join us every Tuesday in February from 5 – 7 p.m. and enjoy African-inspired foods during an energizing social hour and then explore the fabric of our neighborhoods during a one-hour program. Learn about the experiences of black Americans in our society, the vital role this community has played throughout our shared history and draw inspiration from their important messages.

Free for Vulcan Park Foundation members; $5 for non-members
