Jeff Bradshaw is known as a soul-jazz and hip/hop funk innovator. As a boy in Philadelphia, Bradshaw performed with brass bands on Broad Street, just a stone’s throw from the spot where Philadelphia’s most prestigious arts center, The Kimmel Center, stands today.  The respect accorded Jeff by his peers is shown by the impressive list of artists he’s worked with: Marsha Ambrosius, Will Downing, Black Thought of The Roots, Kim Burrell, Take 6, Najee, Eric Roberson, Bilal, Trombone Shorty & more.
Avant is a name that has been used in the context of being original or innovative but the singer/songwriter from Cleveland has transformed the word into a powerhouse brand. Since breaking out on the music scene with his first platinum hit singles, “Separated,” and “My First Love” he has been on a non-stop journey having released seven albums in the last 15 years.
 Maimouna Youssef aka Mumu Fresh, the singer, emcee and songwriter has been making waves in the Indie music scene since receiving a GRAMMY nomination for her vocal contribution to The Roots hit “Don’t Feel Right.” She has shared stages with music giants such as Sting, Common, Was, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Bobby McFerrin, Jill Scott, Aloe Blacc, Lalah Hathaway and more.

Where to celebrate Frederick Douglass’s 200th birthday around D.C.

Frederick Douglass was born on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Although the abolitionist and author lived in New York and Massachusetts after escaping slavery, he spent the last years of his life in Washington, serving as a U.S. Marshal and the city’s recorder of deeds, and living at a 15-acre estate in Anacostia named Cedar Hill.

It is at Cedar Hill, now the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, where the National Park Service will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Douglass’s birth on Feb. 17 and 18. (Douglass’s actual birth date is unknown, and he chose to celebrate it on Feb. 14 later in life.) National Park Service spokeswoman Pya Langley says the two-day celebration will be the biggest celebration of Douglass’s life at any Park Service site this year. “Some of our other sites highlight his life,” she says. “But this is the only site 100 percent-dedicated to Frederick Douglass in the [NPS] system.”

This weekend’s festivities are not the only way to honor one of America’s greatest statesmen: There are tours and events around the area throughout February.
