To celebrate Black History Month, The Paley Center for Media – the iconic cultural institution that has led the discussion about the cultural, creative, and social significance of media for over 45 years – will be presenting an exclusive panel discussion, “The Storytellers: Preserving the Legacy of Iconic Black Musicians.”
The conversation – taking place Thursday, February 16 at 7pm ET at the Paley Museum - will feature some of the storytellers who have helped preserve the legacy of Black musical icons, including Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
