About the Event

The fifth installment of From Tragedy to Triumph tells the story of the systemic violence of the Jim Crow Era (1880–1945) through the imagined portrait of Jack Smith, a fictional character representing the plight of millions of African Americans during this dark chapter of U.S. history. The fictional film tells the story of one man’s life under Jim Crow as he develops a love for jazz to help him survive the racism he experiences. The event will include a discussion and Q&A session with the film’s creators led by USC Thornton professor Ron McCurdy.

RSVP to attend the event on Zoom and participate in the discussion and live Q&A. Viewers can watch the livestream of the event at thorntonlive.usc.edu without RSVP.

Closed captioning will be available in the webinar.
