As some of you may know KSDS is located in downtown San Diego at City College, and is part of the San Diego Community College District. We want to share with you a recent message from our San Diego Community College District Chancellor, Constance M. Carroll and her leadership team. KSDS celebrates the art form of Jazz every day. Our mission is to preserve the past, promote the present and nurture the future of it. Today, and every day, we stand in support and solidarity of our rich Jazz heritage and its African-American roots. For those of you who missed it KSDS explored and played an hour of Jazz protest songs.
