April 14th - 3rd Annual Jazz Appreciation Month Event: Robert “Bootsie” Barnes Quartet Thursday, April 14, 2016, 2:00 PM Blockson Collection, Sullivan Hall, 1330 Polett Walk Join us for a musical commemoration of the Great Migration with the Robert “Bootsie” Barnes Quartet, a fixture in Philadelphia’s jazz scene. The performance will include compositions from 1910 to 1930, the time period marking the first Great Migration—the mass movement of African Americans from the southern United States to northern industrial cities. This first wave was fueled mainly by oppressive conditions in the south and the promise of economic opportunities in the north.
