Jazz & Jacob:Poetry in the Galleries All the World’s a Poem

Jazz & Jacob Series
During the ’20s and ’30s, the Harlem Renaissance exploded onto the scene and the US witnessed a burst of African American cultural life.  The Brooks brings that excitement to your city and community by celebrating all the arts on Thursdays in July.

THIS Thursday, July 2  |  6 pm
Actor, producer, and director Darius Wallace will be sharing his talent as he presents the poetry of the Harlem Renaissance. Featuring selections by Langston Hughes and Richard Wright, Wallace will expand history both visually and theatrically.

Wallace currently works in Memphis and has acted in several shows at the Playhouse on the Square, written a one-man show about Martin Luther King, and performed at the National Civil Rights Museum.  He and his work have travelled all over the states and Memphis alike.  Don’t miss out on this talented legend.

Mention this blog and you’ll get $3 bucks off the cost of the show.

Enjoy dinner and drinks in the Brushmark Restaurant after the show  until 9 pm. Make your reservations here.
