What they’ve said about themselves…
As found on their website: “Williamsburg Music Center is a black owned Jazz venue that was opened in 1981 by legendary composer, conductor & musician Gerry Eastman. Gerry has worked with artists like Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, Etta Jones and the Isley Brothers to name a few.
During the time of opening WMC, Williamsburg was at the peak of violence, poverty, and discrimination for People of Color living in NYC. One of the many reasons Gerry sought out to open WMC was to provide a safe space for POC musicians to perform; and to honor the African musical diaspora.”
