  • Langston Hughes’ Ask Your Mama: Twelve Moods for Jazz Featuring the Ron McCurdy Quartet
    02-21-2018 | 7:00 p.m. | McAfee Concert Hall

    This thought-provoking work titled, Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz.  The poetry is Hughes' social commentary on the struggle for freedom and equality among Africans and African Americans in the 1960s. Given our current social and political climate, Hughes' words  can be considered still relevant today.  

    Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the performance will begin at 7 p.m.

    Belmont faculty, staff and the general public can purchase tickets for $5 at the door. Students are free with their BUID.

    The goals of the convo are to introduce students of color to the history, cultural significance and nuances of navigating membership as it relates to black Greek letter organizations. Many students see the prestige of being Greek, but they often know very little about the history, responsibilities and dedication that is required to seek and maintain membership.  The goal is that this event will provide attendees with exposure and insight.
