Ask Your Mama: Echoes of Langston Hughes

JazzCity updates Langston Hughes' masterwork about race relations in the '60s with an up-to-the-minute version that demonstrates both how far we have come and how far we still have to go. Spoken word artist Marvin Tate will collaborate with composers Greg Ward and Ben LaMar Gay to reflect Hughes' vision with his own personal journey of growing up in a post-civil rights society, through song, dance, poetry, storytelling and experimental theater.

JazzCity is a free concert series initiated in 1997 by the Jazz Institute in collaboration with the Chicago Park District, now in its 20th season of bringing people together from across the city to listen to Chicago's top jazz musicians.
