Mingus, Music, and the Struggle for Civil Rights

Sue Mingus and Clayborne Carson with Mark Gonnerman

Tuesday, February 1, 2011 | 7:30pm | Pigott Theater | Free and Open to All

Since Charles Mingus’ death in 1979, Sue Mingus has created and continues to direct repertory ensembles to carry on the music of her late husband. Her memoir, Tonight at Noon: A Love Story, is a riveting account of her improbable life with the peerless jazz artist who died from ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) when he was only 56 years old. Ms. Mingus is joined by Clayborne Carson, Stanford professor of history and director of the Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute, for a conversation about arts and music in the Civil Rights Era.

Thanks to Stanford Lively arts, Mingus Dynasty and Mingus Big Band, will perform at Stanford on February 2 and April 13.
