Candice Hoyes

Award-winning recording artist Candice Hoyes has been dubbed a modern “artist-cum-activist” for using her coloristic vocalism to explore Black identity, futurity and collective transformation. A TED presenter and a Harvard alum, she is a performer and lecturer at Jazz at Lincoln Center and CUNY. In this session, targeted to high school and college students, Candice will perform songs layered with meaning, and guide participants through reflective conversation on the cultural richness and innovation of jazz through a womanist lens, and how it inspires our vision of both music and social justice.
