NJ Education Group To Host Former NAACP Leader

NEWARK, NJ - The New Jersey Citizen Action Education Fund (NJCAEF) is hosting a very special performance by renowned Civil Rights Leader and former Chairman of the NAACP, Julian Bond this Friday. In "Crossing the Color Line: From Rhythm-n-Blues to Rock-n-Roll," Mr. Bond presents a history of American music, tracing the melding of jazz, blues, country music and pop into rock & roll, stopping along the way to examine the influences of race, music demographics, war, immigration and technology in this transformation. His presentation will be accompanied by music and photos describing how black and white Americans, immigrants and their music, and entrepreneurial efforts came together to create a new type of music. 

This entertaining and informative program recognizes among other things, the interplay of race and public policy. This program is being held in partnership with the Rutgers University Constitutional Law Clinic. Welcoming remarks provided by Dean John J. Farmer Jr., Rutgers School of Law-Newark and an introduction by Dr. Clement Price, Distinguished Service Professor and the Founder and Director of the Institute on Ethnicity, Culture, and the Modern Experience.

 


 

NJCAEF is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1983 to empower low- and moderate-income people through research, education and training on public policy issues important to working families and seniors, direct counseling and services. Our goals are to promote social and economic justice for all.
