Charles Mingus Plaque Unveiling this Wednesday May 31 at 6pm with Musical Performances and Speakers — Register Now
Join us in person this Wednesday evening at 6pm for our latest historic plaque unveiling, this time honoring jazz genius Charles Mingus at his former home on Great Jones Street, where he also intended to open a school. We’ll be joined by some incredible musicians who will be performing some of Mingus’ works, and by authors who knew Mingus personally and have written extensively about his life and work. We do ask all who intend to attend to register for the event.
This is our 22nd plaque unveiling. Our program has honored and marked the homes of local figures from Jane Jacobs to James Baldwin and Jean-Michel Basquiat; Allen Ginsberg to Alex Haley; Frank O’Hara to Frank Stella; Martha Graham to Lorraine Hansberry, and many more.
