Birth of Cool: Miles Davis exhibit brings stylish flair to JSU (921 hits)


It was Wednesday night in the capital city, and inside Jackson State Universityís Downtown Campus Gallery, 101 W. Capitol St., something was stirring. Soul stirring if one had to define it.

JSU President William B. Bynum Jr. was holding a donorís reception and those in attendance will be the first to witness an exhibit featuring the art of legendary musician Miles Davis, who died in 1991.

But before guests indulged their curiosity, Bynum reminded them that the evening was serving a dual purpose.


ďLadies and gentlemen, thank you for being here tonight at the donorís reception. Itís our way of saying thank you for your generosity to Jackson State University and our students,Ē he spoke into the mic while holding the hand of his wife, Deborah, first lady of the institution.
