Jazz music. Jazz dance. Jazz history. 

The culture of Five Points comes alive during Black History Month. Explore the history of music in Five Points and its connection to some of the legendary Jazz musicians and performers. “Nationally known figures performed at the Rossonian, including Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday. When folks wanted to listen to music, they went to Five Points.”

The Jazz Roots event runs over two Saturdays during Black History Month and includes live performances from a variety of talented Jazz artists. There’s something for families and adults alike.
