    Joplin & Josephine: Play Me I'm Yours > Performing a history of  Ragtime to Jazz

    Local artist Pampi and her incredible talented musical friends are excited to present a once-only free after-school show on the day Boston's 75 street pianos for Celebrity Series' Street Pianos Festival are unveiled. Her piano is dedicated to acquainting the famous Ragtime composer Scott Joplin with the inimitable dancer-cum-media-maker Josephine Baker. This after-school street performance will explore the history of African-American entertainment through a presentation on ragtime and jazz. Performance themes: *History of how ragtime and jazz ushered in a new era of African-American entertainment that resisted the racialized iconography established by minstrel and blackface forms *Negotiating cultural appropriation in identity creation *The importance of remembering and learning history in resisting and critiquing contemporized racialized iconography in big media
