Screening Of The Film Evolutionary Blues: West Oakland's Music Legacy
In observance of Black History Month, the Rotary Club of Oakland is hosting a screening of Evolutionary Blues - West Oakland's Music Legacy
Evolutionary Blues is a full-length documentary, featuring interviews with more than 30 artists who regularly played in clubs and music venues that lined the blocks of 7th Street before a charge for “urban renewal” decimated the thriving, self-sustaining Oakland Black community. It’s a story about the Great Migration, told through the lens and culture of blues musicians, many of whom never made it to national fame but were respected and acclaimed within the true blues scene. They carried the soul of their Southern roots — Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas — to Oakland.
Doors will open at 6pm with the screening begining at 7pm. After the screening, there will be a Q&A with the films' Director, Cheryl Fabio. Proof of full vaccination is required. Except when eating and drinking, masks must be worn.
Tickets are $ 14.00 + ticketing fees
