Join us at Bethany Baptist Church for a screening of this award-winning documentary film about the founding of Newark’s jazz radio station, WBGO. Directed by Chris Daniel, The WBGO Story is an incredible true story of passion and perseverance told by the people who were there at the start more than 40 years ago—including WBGO Founder Bob Ottenhoff and Newark’s First Lady of Jazz Mrs. Dorthaan Kirk. With hard work, faith, determination and talent, WBGO grew from a local labor of love into a worldwide beacon of jazz. A must-see for any music fan.
Facemasks and proof of vaccination are required for entry.
Presented by NJPAC and WBGO
