A Great Day In Harlem
Director: Jean Bach
(1994, 60 minutes)
A Great Day in Harlem brings to life a remarkable moment in the history of jazz—a moment in which dozens of America's jazz legends unexpectedly gathered together for a photograph in 1958 that would become emblematic of the golden age of jazz. By illuminating this single, historic event, the film is a window to an unprecedented era in music history which addresses broader issues of creativity and community in our own time.

The exhibition Among Others: Photography and the Group will be open for program attendees.

Friday, August 2, 7 pm
Films are free with museum admission.

Advance reservations for Morgan Members only. Tickets are available at the Admission Desk on the day of the screening.
