Martin Luther King Day – January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968 Max Roach Quintet

Sunday, 15 January 2023 — Jazz on the Tube

Minister, leader, activist and PhD Martin Luther King, Jr. was born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Known for his use of civil disobedience and non-violent protests to combat racial segregation and discrimination in the United States, without his leadership our country would not have made the progress that it has.

Today we honor his life with this 1964 performance of “Freedom Day” by the Max Roach Quintet with Abbey Lincoln on vocals.
