The Black and Tan: Reimagining Seattle’s Legendary Jazz Club
Tuesday, February 27, 2018
7 – 9 pm
The Black & Tan Club was the heart of Seattle’s legendary Jackson Street jazz scene and welcomed people of all races during a time when segregation prevailed. The newly founded Black & Tan Hall in Hillman City draws on that history, using an innovative cooperative-ownership model to resist displacement while creating a space for community performance and cuisine.
Join jazz historian Paul de Barros, author of Jackson Street After Hours, as he moderates this exploration of the Black & Tan past and present. Hear from one of the founders of the highly-anticipated Black & Tan Hall and enjoy live jazz music from the era when the original club thrived and jived in the Central Area.
Presented in partnership with the Black & Tan Hall.
Cost: $5 for MOHAI members / $10 general public
