[jja-announce] Members-only Online Forum on Jazz & Race

On March 22, from 8 to 11 p.m., Eastern, all JJA members are invited to 
participate in an online forum to discuss the topic of jazz and race.

Unlike previous JJA online forums, this will be a members-only 
discussion and there will be no invited panelists. Instead, all members 
will be able to post their thoughts and respond to others. The forum 
will be co-moderated by JJA president Howard Mandel, myself and 
(schedule permitting) JJA vice-president Willard Jenkins.

By now, hopefully, you will have seen Willard's JazzNotes column "Is 
Racism Still An Issue In Jazz?" and its closing request for further 
discussion. The online forum will provide an opportunity to pursue the 
issues he addresses and develop some positive actions that our 
association could pursue.

To participate, all you need to do is log on to www.jazzhouse.org on 
March 22 between 8 and 11 p.m. Eastern and follow the link to the 
forum. High-speed access is not necessary to participate. Complete 
instructions and a members-only password will be e-mailed to you prior 
to March 22.

Managing Editor
