Let Freedom Swing
This project and accompanying study guide explore the relationships between two great American traditions: jazz and democracy. Two iconic Americans stand at the heart of the project: Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and jazz trumpeter, composer, and educator Wynton Marsalis, who is Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center. O’Connor and Marsalis teamed up for a concert at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, on the
eve of President Obama’s inauguration, January 20, 2009. Justice O’Connor loves jazz (and, of course, democracy); Marsalis loves democracy (and, of course, jazz). Their conversations about the parallels between these two great American traditions provided the stimulus for the concert that inspired the idea for the short videos and educational materials presented here.
