The Cotton Club

When: Sat., Aug. 11, 8 p.m. 2012

To see 1950s Pikes Peak Library District photos of Fannie Mae Duncan inside her locally legendary Cotton Club is to instantly get a sense of the vital and energetic jazz spot it was. It remains a place worth commemorating, hence the Colorado Springs Diversity Forum's annual Cotton Club celebration, taking place from 8 p.m. to midnight at Stargazers Theatre and Event Center (10 S. Parkside Drive, stargazerstheatre.com). Local funk, Motown and R&B act Suga Bear & the Show Time Band will take care of the soundtrack at this concluding event of Everybody Welcome week. Entry is free, but RSVPs encouraged at info@cospdiversityforum.org. — Matthew Schniper
