National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) jazz master Randy Weston and African rhythms and NEA jazz master Candido Camero tell the story of slavery and freedom in America. Historian Wayne Chandler provides historical and current insight into how the African diaspora and the legacy of Africans in America lead to the creation of jazz and other musical and cultural norms that are part of the American experience. Dr. Johnnetta Cole, director of the National Museum of African Art, joins John Hasse, American History Museum curator of music, to moderate the discussion.

Following the discussion, Weston illuminates the story in music, historical images, and narration through excerpts of his latest jazz opus, Nubian Suite, which he developed as a Guggenheim Fellow and has performed only once, in 2012. Book signing follows.
