Join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month at the Blockson Collection with a screening of Mother Dot’s Philadelphia: The Music Continues (runtime 26 min). This film by Malkia K. Lydia and Ryan Saunders follows Philly jazz legend Dottie “Mother Dot” Smith as she visits her contemporaries and old venues.

The film aired on Philadelphia’s public television station WYBE and its musical score, composed by Philadelphia’s own Rodney Whittenberg, won a regional Emmy. Mother Dot’s Philadelphia is filled with music and candid conversations about faith and family.

This program is part of the Black Lives Always Mattered! public program series at the Blockson Collection, which is made possible through the support of the PEW Center for Arts & Heritage grant.

Programs offered by Temple University Libraries are accessible to people with disabilities. Please contact Richie Holland, Director of Library Administration, at richieh@temple.edu or 215-204-3455 for more information, to request an accommodation, or with questions/concerns.
