Tiffany Austin will perform live with pianist Adam Shulman and bassist David Ewell for a live recording of KALW's "Philosophy Talk". Event details below:
Join us at Stanford University CEMEX Auditorium for a live recording of "Nonhuman Rights" with legal scholar Steven M. Wise, founder and president of the Nonhuman Rights Project:
Human rights—like freedom from discrimination and slavery—are fundamental rights and freedoms that every person enjoys simply because they're human. But what about other animals, like monkeys, elephants, and dolphins? Should they enjoy similar fundamental rights? If we can extend the legal notion of personhood to inanimate, abstract objects like corporations, then shouldn’t it also be extended to other sentient creatures? How should we understand the concept of a “person” when it’s applied to nonhumans? What kind of cognitive and emotional complexity is required for nonhuman personhood?
This event is free and open to the public but registration is required. More information at https://philosophytalk.org/node/5664.

Family Matinee: Tiffany Austin
SFJAZZ is proud to celebrate the centennial of one of the greatest voices in jazz and First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald! Born in 1917, Ella’s powerful tone, impeccable phrasing and uncanny scatting made her one of the most beloved vocalists in American music history. Since her seminal days with the Chick Webb Orchestra before launching her stunning solo career, Lady Ella immortalized jazz and popular song like no one else. From her exquisite rendition of “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” to her many collaborations with jazz giants, Fitzgerald was among the heralded jazz singers to canonize the Great American Songbook and successfully cross over to the non-jazz audience. For our Family Matinee in honor of Women’s History Month, Bay Area soulful songstress Tiffany Austin celebrates the legacy of one of the most iconic figures in American music.
