Blinded at birth, multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk was destined to open the eyes and ears of many with his breathtaking talent, fearless activism and inspiring spirit of determination. Rahsaan Roland Kirk wore as many hats as he played instruments (frequently all at once). He overcame obstacles as formidable and diverse as paralysis and racial prejudice to live out the vivid dreams that shaped his identity. From tenor sax to flute, he was an unstoppable showman who continued to play music and tour even after a stroke left him effectively one-handed. Part of our series Earshot Jazz Films.
