Foundational Black Americans are responsible for the creation and popularity of Jazz and Gospel. Both art forms have influenced the world over and continue to be the basis for the majority of music we listen to and appreciate today.
The Thurman Foundation is dedicated to preserving, protecting and perpetuating our music within its originating culture.
We accomplish this by:
- Advancing Jazz & Gospel Education
- Developing Appreciation
- Promoting Performance
Join us in keeping our legacy alive.
