A lifelong supporter and advocate of the arts, rooted in the Central District, Jazmyn Scott is the current and first Program Manager of LANGSTON; Seattle’s hub for Black arts and culture. In 2009 Jazmyn founded The Town Entertainment, a company that presented, produced & promoted unique live music and unique events in Seattle, as well as the marketing & development up and coming artists; primarily in the R&B/Soul genre.
In 2012, Jazmyn co-founded 50 Next: Seattle Hip-Hop Worldwide (www.50nextseattle.com), a digital “time capsule” highlighting Seattle and Northwest Hip-Hop, and later partnered with the Black Heritage Society of WA to plan the Black History Month Celebration at the Museum of History & Industry in 2014. The success of that event led to the opportunity to curate a community exhibit on Seattle Hip-Hop. The Legacy of Seattle Hip-Hop exhibit had a highly successful run at MOHAI from September 19, 2015 until May 1, 2016 and won the 2016 American Association for State & Local History (AASLH) Leadership in History award.
Jazmyn can often be found hosting, emceeing and moderating arts and culture-related events and programs, and recently interviewed Gabrielle Union during her Seattle stop on her Real Life Book Club Tour in 2017.
