Abstract
The argument of this paper is that the white members of the jazz community underwent a significant change in its racial attitudes between 1935 and 1945. Prior to the 1940s, the jazz community was generally segregated. The dominant white members, with few exceptions, had little or no consciousness of the benefits of interracial contact.
