LYME/OLD LYME — On Wednesday, Jan. 12, the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library and the Lyme Public Library are co-sponsoring a virtual event that includes a live performance, a lecture and music trivia. The program begins at 6:30 p.m.

Learn how Jazz was an advocate for the Civil Rights Movement, with proceeds from concerts helping to finance major events such as the Freedom Rides and the March on Washington in 1963.
Galen Abdur-Razzaq, a Master Flutist, a jazz historian, and an educator, will chronicle music from the turn of the century to present day and highlight various artists, their music, their struggles, and their influence on the evolution of jazz.
