Jazz & Jackie 2024 on May 11

Jazz & Jackie: A Musical Salute to Jackie Robinson presented by The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is back in 2024!

When Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball’s color-barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 he not only changed the game but America too. But before Robinson wore number 42 for the Dodgers, he wore number 5 for the Kansas City Monarchs.

Jazz & Jackie celebrates his Kansas City professional baseball roots and his unbridled love of jazz, an art form that got its soul in Kansas City.

The event features a soul-stirring concert by five-time Grammy Award-winning songstress, LALAH HATHAWAY.

JAZZ & JACKIE is made possible through the generous support of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, State of Missouri, NTDF, Hill’s Pet Nutrition and Evergy.

Event proceeds benefit the NLBM.
