Afternoon Jam Session

Are you woke? The Afternoon Jam Session brought together some of the nation’s leading young poets, Jookin’ innovator Lil Buck, writer/activist Yosimar Reyes, and more special guests for a spirited hour of cross-disciplinary performance, collaboration, and discussion.

Lyrical, musical, and physical acrobatics introduced ideas and issues central to this year’s Aspen Ideas Festival — from truth and identity to making it in the America we know. The session held up a mirror to Festival attendees asking, “what is your responsibility to justice in America?” This session was led by dancer turned director Damian Woetzel.
