Famed New Orleans jazz saxophonist and Berklee alum Donald Harrison (left), featured in Spike Lee's critically acclaimed documentary When the Levees Broke, is a performer who spans genres; he has played with Miles Davis and mentored the Notorious B.I.G., among others. He was in Boston, Masachsuetts this week and gave a special N'Olens style blessing to the Berklee School of Music's new Africana Studies center. This room is a space on campus for students to be actively involved with the Africana Studies curriculum initiative. He was accompanied by percussionists Thimba Mkhatshwa and Berklee Presidential scholar from New Orleans Joseph C. Dyson (right).
