Easily Slip Into Another World: A Life in Music with Henry Threadgill (In Person)

Henry Threadgill is a towering figure of contemporary American music. His autobiography is a riveting account of the music scene in Chicago in the 1960s, his experiences as a Black soldier in Vietnam, and the ensembles he has led—and is a powerful meditation on history, race, capitalism, and art. Henry Threadgill is one of only three jazz artists to receive the Pulitzer Prize. Brent Hayes Edwards, author of Epistrophies: Jazz and the Literary Imagination, will be in conversation. Raymond Lotta of Revolution Books will host.
