We mourn the loss of our inspiration and JfJ performer (2006, 2007), South African jazz maestro, Zim Ngqawana. His music, his life, and his message of music as liberation were all encapsulated in the concept of Zimology. There are plans to establish a Jazz Studies scholarship in his name at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
This University of Tennessee program offers students the opportunity to engage in international service learning. It combines academics with internships in order to facilitate learning while allowing students to work with individuals and groups who are promoting peace and development in this war-affected region. It builds on the work done by the Jazz for Justice team in northern Uganda and in the Knoxville, TN region since 2005. To learn more about the program, see the GSSAP blog, Facebook page, registration site, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
