On April 14th, TEDxFoggyBottom will feature the innovative ideas of our community’s risk-takers and unconventional change-makers. With our 2018 theme of Fear Itself, we aim to re-examine the concept of fear by presenting talks and performances that cast it in different lights: as a hindrance, a motivator, a biological response, a source of entertainment, and even as an immovable given. Over the next few weeks, we will highlight speakers who have committed to TEDxFoggyBottom 2018.
Jamal Gray is a musician, organizer, curator, and the founder/Director of the Uptown Art House. As leader of the avant garde, Afrofuturist jazz troupe, The Nag Champa Art Ensemble, Gray has bridged the gap between the cities underground art and music scenes and combined them to revive a unique creative community in D.C. Performances at The John F. Kennedy Center, The Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Black Cat have quickly cemented the group as a city staple with critics and music enthusiasts alike.
