WEAA and Creative Alliance celebrate Black Music Month by presenting "1963: The Music and The Movement" in conjunction with Baltimore Jazz Alliance and the Baltimore City branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The event will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Black Music Month. Robert Shahid, host of the morning show on WEAA, will moderate a conversation with a panel of musicians, researchers, and academicians exploring the jazz and soul music of the era, from John Coltraine's "Alabama" to James Brown's "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)," influenced and was influenced by the Civil Rights Movement. Baltimore actor and writer Keith Snipes will reenact a 1964 speech given by Martin Luther King Jr. and the panel will be followed by a jam session led by Baltimore jazz musician Craig Alston.
