New Day Jazz

Justin Desmangles

This week on New Day Jazz, we celebrate the life and legacy of Abbey Lincoln. Poet, songwriter and a leading force in the Black Consciousness Movement, Ms. Lincoln celebrated her 80th birthday this past week, August 6th.
Also, as part of our continuing focus on the works of
James Baldwin, we will listen in on an interview, conducted by Studs Terkel, from 1961, on the occasion of the publication of the essay collection, Nobody Knows My Name.
