Overview

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. It’s 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.

Presented by NJPAC and WBGO
