New York City based collective Arts for Art (AFA) is proud to present FreeJazz Works in a Time of Crisis, a weekly livestream series that celebrates and acknowledges the music and art that emerged from the Civil Rights movement by African American artists as part of the great tradition of aesthetic and social liberation. Every Thursday in August (and beyond), Arts for Art will stream performances from legendary FreeJazz musicians with socially relevant conversations on Zoom and its YouTube channel.

All of the events are free with an optional donation, and all performers are paid. Register for free at
