Event Description

The Tea: J Pope

In this online series, women musicians perform original work via live-stream on the museum’s social media channels on the first Friday of the month. Each session includes a short interview, conducted over a cup of tea, which explores the artist’s creative process. The Tea proudly welcomes J Pope this month and will be live streaming on NMWA’s Facebook page and at nmwa.org/livestream.

Singer, MC and percussionist J Pope fell in love with music at church and was influenced by D.C. go-go artists as well as trailblazing Black female vocalists including Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, Lauryn Hill and fellow D.C.-area native Me’shell Ndegeocello. With her band, The HearNow, Pope performs nationally and has opened for artists including Esperanza Spalding, Robert Randolph, The Wailers, The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Tank and the Bangas.

The Tea is presented by the museum’s Women, Arts, and Social Change public program initiative.
