Cultural Icon: A Tribute to Oscar Brown, Jr.
Celebrate Oscar Brown, Jr. on his birthday weekend!

DC vocalist James Zimmerman pays tribute to this incredible, powerful artist who dedicated his life to social activism, creating art, music and theatre that intimately reflected the lives and culture of African Americans. Oscar's songs are brought to life in this performance--narrative lyrics and evocative songs speak to the times in which we live.  

According to Oscar, "My lyrics are verses about feelings I've felt and scenes I've dug" The melodies, I made from tunes, rhythms, chants, calls and cries that have always sung to me."  

A film documentary about Brown's life, "Music is My Life, Politics my Mistress" will be screened before the musical performance.  Joining James on the performance will be Janelle Gill, piano; Herman Burney, bass, Nasar Abadey, drums and Benjamin Sands, saxophone/flute.
