The African American Arts Advocacy Committee or, the NETWORK for short, is a new initiative being launched by UMS for the 04-05 season. The goal is to create a space where the Black community can celebrate the world class artists that are brought to this community, with a focus on those artists that are really using the African American experience as a platform for creative performance.
Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
UMSs 126th season opens with a return engagement by Wynton Marsalis and his popular Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Comprised of 15 of the finest soloists and ensemble players performing today, the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra features a vast repertory, from rare historic compositions to commissioned works. LCJO returns for its first UMS appearance since 2001, following Wynton Marsaliss concerts with his Quintet last season. One rarely hears this music played with such technical brilliance, stylistic authenticity and tonal sheen Here were the throaty reeds, percussive trumpet blasts, and visceral sense of swing that have made the LCJO the greatest large jazz ensemble working today.

Frederick Douglass Papers at the Library of Congress presents the
papers of the nineteenth-century African-American abolitionist who escaped
from slavery and then risked his own freedom by becoming an outspoken antislavery
lecturer, writer, and publisher. The release of the Douglass Papers, from
the Library of Congress's Manuscript Division, contains approximately 7,400
items (38,000 images) relating to Douglass' life as an escaped slave, abolitionist,
editor, orator, and public servant. The papers span the years 1841 to 1964,
with the bulk of the material from 1862 to 1895. The collection consists
of correspondence, speeches and articles by Douglass and his contemporaries,
a draft of his autobiography, financial and legal papers, scrapbooks, and
miscellaneous items. These papers reveal Douglass' interest in diverse subjects
such as politics, emancipation, racial prejudice, women's suffrage, and
prison reform. Included is correspondence with many prominent civil rights
reformers of his day, including Susan B. Anthony, William Lloyd Garrison,
Gerrit Smith, Horace Greeley, and Russell Lant, and political leaders such
as Grover Cleveland and Benjamin Harrison. Scrapbooks document Douglass'
role as minister to Haiti and the controversy surrounding his interracial
second marriage. The online release of the Frederick Douglass Papers is
made possible through the generous support of the Citigroup Foundation.
