DETROIT,  -- In celebration of Black History Month, organizers of the Detroit International Jazz Festival announce an unprecedented event in partnership with Bishop Edgar L. Vann II of Second Ebenezer Church.THE MOVEMENT Revisited, a jazz opus by Christian McBride, will make its Detroit debut at Second Ebenezer Church,Sunday, February 14 at 7:30pm.

THE MOVEMENT Revisited pays tribute to Rosa ParksMuhammad Ali, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr.  McBride believes that "the sacrifices made by these four individuals have been so enveloped in myth that to a large extent, their names are remembered more than their accomplishments. This piece captures musically how their deeds shaped our world, and reminds us of our responsibility to pave the way for many to live a better life."  In celebration of the election of America's first Black President in 2009, McBride has written a new movement which will premiere at this performance.Confirmed narrators include internationally renowned poet, author and playwright Sonia Sanchez as Rosa Parks; actor Dion Graham, whose credits include The Wire, Law & Order and Homicide: Life on the Street, as Muhammad Ali; Dr. Willis Patterson, Professor Emeritus of University of Michigan School of Music as Malcolm X; and Bishop Vann as The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
