“Jazz is not just music, it’s a way of life, it’s a way of being, a way of thinking.”

~Nina Simone

“Our nation – and our world –face a “perfect storm” of economic and environmental crises that threaten not only the global economy, but life on Earth. The dire, existential threats of climate change, oil wars, and a stagnating, crisis-ridden economic system…. will require bold and visionary solutions if we hope to leave a livable world for the next generations.”


These looming crises and questions facing us are historically unique. The fate of humanity is in our hands. It’s not just a question of what kind of world we want, but whether we have a world where we can survive.

Nina Simone – Revolution & Strange Fruit

“At this crucial time in our lives, when everything is so desperate, when every day is a matter of survival, I don’t think you can help but be involved.”
~Nina Simone

“I’ll tell you what freedom is to me: no fear. I mean really, no fear!”

―Nina Simone

“The only truth is music.”

― Jack Kerouac
