Martha Feldman

Love, Race, and Resistance: The Fugitive Voice of Nina Simone

Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 4:00pm

McClintock Choral and Recital Room

Part of the Music Studies Distinguished Speakers Series

Martha Feldman is the Edwin A. and Betty L. Bergman Distinguished Service Professor of Music and the Humanities at the University of Chicago. She discusses the ways in which attachment to vocal objects—conceived as a kind of love—converges with political resistance in the music of iconic jazz singer and pianist Nina Simone. The event will be followed by a 5:30 p.m. reception in the Jean Gimbel Lane Reception Room.
