Last year, Grammy-winning bassist and composer Christian McBride reissued his landmark 1998 composition, The Movement Revisited: A Musical Portrait of Four Icons. The album is dedicated to Black history and the work of four key figures of the Civil Rights Movement: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, and Muhammad Ali. McBride’s musical career has never turned its eye from advocacy and justice: from chairing a town hall on racism in the performing arts in 1997 with then-President Bill Clinton to running the Jazz House Kids community arts organization. At LIVE from NYPL, McBride will speak with author and critic Nelson George about the power of art to impact critical issues and the responsibilities we have to build upon the legacies of generations past.
