It was the 1920s, the Jazz Age. There were wild parties! And while Al Capone was busy unleashing violence upon Chicago, African Americans in Bible Belt Georgia were fighting racial, social, and political battles, thus transforming America in unexpected ways.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Jazz Age, the Roaring Twenties. Join the DeKalb History Center as we learn about the Jazz Age in the South from an African American perspective. This informative and entertaining program will include dynamic presentations, the award-winning Georgia State University Jazz Band, and an original documentary detailing this fascinating decade. The Historic DeKalb Courthouse will be transformed musically and visually into a speakeasy. Feel free to wear something that embodies the Roaring Twenties!
