The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival present a free screening of the award-winning music documentary, The Girls In The Band, which tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, groundbreaking journeys from the late 30′s to the present day. These incredibly talented women endured sexism, racism and diminished opportunities for decades, yet continued to persevere, inspire and elevate their talents in a field that seldom welcomed them.
