We're celebrating Black Music Month (June). This week: a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, his vision, courage, gift of hope, leadership through the Struggle, with this performance of “The Dream” -- a duet for solo drum Max Roach with Dr. King's historic "I Have a Dream" speech at the March on Washington.
Percussionist, composer, MacArthur “genius” award-winner, Max was my husband. This episode features Max' masterwork WE INSIST: The Freedom NOW Suite with two special guests who worked with Max and called him friend: musician Brother Ah and stage director George Ferencz
