Rahsaan Roland Kirk: Case of the Three-Sided Dream

Multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk was a one-of-a-kind musician and satirist who, despite being blind and half-paralyzed, did not relent.

A screening of Rahsaan Roland Kirk: Case of the Three-Sided Dream, a compelling new documentary by Adam Kahan about this artist and activist, is presented free as part of the TD James Moody Democracy of Jazz Festival. In addition to Kahan, these panelists will participate in a discussion after the film: cellist and composer Akua Dixon, poet Betty Neals, bassist-composer Michael Max Fleming, and Dorthaan Kirk, Newark’s “First Lady of Jazz.”

Kirk’s life work was exploring sound, making music and fighting racial injustices. 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, Kirk suffered a stroke that left him half-paralyzed. Despite this, he continued to tour and play music with the use of one hand until the day he died.

“We hope you stay on the case.  Don’t get inside the case ’cause if you get inside the case, they’ll shut the case up on you and you’ll never get out again.”
