Experience the groundbreaking sounds of bebop pioneer, virtuoso percussionist and band leader Max Roach, whose far-reaching ambitions were inspired and challenged by the inequities of the society around him.
Max Roach’s stunningly diverse seven-decade career marked him as one of the great musical artists of the 20th century—and a pioneering cultural activist—at times when the nation was steeped in racism.
The film follows Roach across a rich and complicated life, days of now-legendary achievement and also deep personal struggle, and the price he paid for his outspoken views.
