MoAD Hosts Cuban and Puerto Rican Music Lecture Series

The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) is presenting, “My Music is Who I Am: Identity and Resistance in Cuban and Puerto Rico Music,” a lecture series featuring Grammy nominee and Latin Jazz artist John Santos, premiering Wednesday, Aug. 6 from 7 p.m.-9 p.m., at W Hotel San Francisco, 181 3rd St.

The six-week lecture series will highlight the impact and influence music has on culture as expressed through traditional and popular music of Afro-Latin America. This series is part of the “MoAD in the Neighborhood” Series, which debuted in June.

“This popular lecture series is a wonderfully relaxed way to enjoy the sounds and get a peek into the Afro Cuban Diaspora through music. John Santos will help you build a deeper understanding thru this art form,” said Linda Harrison, executive director of the Museum of African American Diaspora

General admission for the series is $15 for MoAD members and $20 for non-members.
