AAAC Monthly Commission Meeting

 Monday Night Jazz in Bushnell Park  

Serious fans from mainstream to smooth to avant-garde jazz come to hear the music, camp down with their blankets, lawn chairs and coolers up close to the park's pavilion stage.  Others come to the park not just for the free music, but also to picnic or party on the lawn, basking in the almost tactile communal vibe that has become one of the hallmarks and great traditions in Hartford's free, jazz-in-the-park summer festivals.

Monday Night Jazz in Bushnell Park opens its weekly series of six consecutive concerts on Monday, July 6, running through August 10. The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz, a weekend extravaganza whose aromatic food booths and big, bustling turnouts transform the park into a vibrantly thriving fairground, bazaar and concert site from Friday, July 17, through Sunday, July 19.

CHARLESTON CHURCH SHOOTING   

The State of Connecticut African-American Affairs Commission mourns with the City of Charleston, South Carolina. On June 17th the nation was brought to its knees by a deranged, racist who sought to use terrorist tactics to execute innocent, God loving people who were worshiping during bible study. Such an abominable act against people of African descent is regrettably sown into the fabric of America. The institution of slavery was the tool used to foster the economic prosperity for this country, both in the South and North. This institution also led to the establishment of the KKK, the sanctioned lynching of black people, the massacre of the black residents of "Black Wall Street" in 1921 (Tulsa, OK), creating and arming white militias to bring back "run-aways", the Jim Crow Laws and church bombings. These assaults against humanity have been responsible for creating and fostering the racial divide that America has yet to eliminate. America continues to relive the nightmare.
