Jazz "Freedom Fighters" and "Cultural Warriors"

Cornel West coined the phrase "jazz freedom fighters", while Eugene Redmund referred to the same artists as "cultural warriors". Both descriptions refer to the role musicians played in the modern civil rights movement, particularly concerning such issues as freedom, community, and cultural identity. Trace the history of jazz in this context, focusing on topics such as the following: - The evolution from early jazz to bebop to hard bop. - Free jazz and Coltrane's spirituality (Henry Martin's Essential Jazz, Chapter 2) - Community based organizations such as the AACM - The "fury for liberty" in the Black Arts Movement - The ways in which musicians and other artists embraced a "counterculture of modernity" to counter racism to advance their own conceptions of freedom and community. Finally, discuss how the various artists and athletes Henry Martin discusses (Essential Jazz, Chapter 3) reflects these themes.
