Press Release- Southfield #Library Black History Month Event

Community Outreach

For Release:
















 Jazz & Black History @ the Southfield Public Library



In celebration of Black History Month, the Library will present a program, "A Great Day in Harlem" on Thursday, Feb. 9th at 7 p.m. in the Meeting Room.


On August 12, 1958, at the request of Esquire magazine, 58 jazz musicians gathered in Harlem to be photographed. This picture subsequently became the most noted and famous jazz photograph of all time.


Stu Johnson, a member of the Michigan Jazz Record Collectors, will present a back story of the photograph and a musical program highlighting several of the musicians present on that eventful day. Mr. Johnson will have an informative handout that includes short biographies of the featured artists.


If you enjoy jazz, this listening and learning session should not be missed.


Southfield Public Library is located in the Southfield Municipal Complex, 26300 Evergreen Road.  Visit the Library's Home Page at
