The Jazz Ambassadors | Free Screening @ Jenkin and Barbara David Theater, Park University
Feb 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
The Jazz Ambassadors | Free Screening @ Jenkin and Barbara David Theater, Park University

In 1956, America announced a new Cold War weapon to combat the U.S.S.R. Jazz musicians like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Dave Brubeck, along with their racially-integrated bands, would cross the globe to counter negative Soviet propaganda about racial inequality in America. But the unfolding Civil Rights movement back home forced these cultural ambassadors into a moral bind — How could they promote a tolerant image of America abroad when equality remained an unrealized dream? The PBS documentary The Jazz Ambassadors is the untold story of America’s coolest weapon in the Cold War and how jazz musicians fought back, winning Civil Rights a voice on the world stage when it needed one most.

Join Park University, the National Archives at Kansas City and Kansas City PBS for a special free screening of the film in the Jenkin and Barbara David Theater within Alumni Hall on the Park University Parkville Campus at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 11.

Admission is free, but attendees are requested to RSVP here or call (816) 584-6214.
