On this day in 1919, James Reese Europe was fatally stabbed by his drummer. They were playing a concert in Boston at Mechanics Hall when the altercation took place during intermission. Europe thought he would survive, but would not live through the night. #jamesreeseeurope @arlingtonnatl photo by @jatiphoto #harlemhellfighters
During the Great Migration, it is no coincidence that a piano style called STRIDE is invented. Here playing James P. Johnson’s CAROLINA SHOUT from 1921. Sneaking it in at @thegreysavannah a month ago. Belly was full, spirit was high, thx to @mashamabailey and crew. #eatsound #twowings

Missing this brother Okwui. In 2014 we had a conversation at @friezeartfair that foreshadowed @labiennale the following year. 🖤. Thinking about all of the beautiful conversations that will happen at Frieze this year, and what will follow. Inspiring.
I wrote a piece for @silkroadproject called MODERATO 400. Inspiration from MLK’s letter from a Birmingham Jail “"I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Councillor or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the WHITE MODERATE, who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice." Premiere this Friday with 4 other premieres in Santa Barbara at @thegranadatheatre . @ucsantabarbara #heroestaketheirstands #silkroad
