Terri Lyne Carrington Presents Music for Abolition

Loading Events

June 8 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Created as part of Visualizing Abolition, Music for Abolition provides a soundtrack for–and heartbeat to–the shared struggle for a future in which prisons, policing, and racial violence are things of the past. Directed and curated by Terri Lyne Carrington, the project brings together artists, dancers, and musicians from a variety of genres to craft a multimedia call for reflection and freedom. In this special event, Carrington and her musical collaborators will take over the IAS galleries for an evening of music and liberation. Attendance is by invitation only.

Please note: Music for Abolition will also be featured as part of the Monterey Jazz Festival 66 in the form of a film screening and conversation with Terri Lyne Carrington, Angela Davis, and Gina Dent at the Pacific Jazz Café in Monterey on Sunday, September 24 from 4:15 to 5:30 PM. For full details, including a link to purchase tickets to the September event, see here.
