VENUE: Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Langston Hughes Auditorium

DATE & TIME: Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 6:30 p.m.

ABOUT THE FILM: This film chronicles the life of Rahsaan Roland Kirk, a one of a kind musician, personality, satirist and windmill-slayer who despite being blind, becoming paralyzed, and facing America’s racial injustices – did not relent. His life’s work was making music. Beyond that, he was an outspoken activist who started a political movement to get more exposure for Jazz in America – particularly on TV. At the age of 40, Rahsaan suffered a stroke which left him half paralyzed. Despite this, he continued to tour and play music, with the use of only one hand, literally until the day he died from a second stroke in 1977 after performing at the Indiana University Student Union in Bloomington, Indiana. He was 42 years old.
