Buffalo Soul: The Legacy Plays On
Buffalo's glory days as a great jazz city are recalled by aging African American musicians who are still performing. They reflect on the era of segregated musicians unions, and the incredible jam sessions at The Colored Musicians Club, which included some of the biggest names in jazz. There is a special tribute to the late Al Tinney of Buffalo, one of the founding fathers of modern jazz.
During this same era, African Americans were drawn to Buffalo for job opportunities. Host, Senior Correspondent Rich Newberg, is joined by Mylous Hairston, who highlights the challenges of the times, and talks with Buffalonian Eva Noles, known for breaking the color barrier in the nursing profession.
