Gordon is a jazz producer, consultant, and scholar. At Radcliffe, she will work on a book that presents the genius of four Black women, all jazz musicians taking their places as luminaries in jazz history, who speak for themselves using archival research framed in the “jazz geography” of their lives.


Free and open to the public.
