Outspoken | Topic: Women In Jazz and Their Role In Activism & Social Change | Guest: Sweet Baby Jai
Sweet Baby Jai is the co-founder of the Palm Springs Women's Jazz Festival. She visits with Joy Silver on this episode of Outspoken about the monumental part that both Billie Holliday, with her song Strange Fruit, and Nina Simone, with her Mississippi Goddam, played in bringing about awareness, activism, and social change through their music. They also explore what women in jazz are doing today along those same lines.
