Celebration of Max Roach

Near the end of 2012, the Library of Congress acquired the papers of drummer, composer, bandleader, activist and educator Max Roach. The collection is massive, comprising more than 100,000 items including scores, manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, and business papers, in addition to audio and video recordings. To announce the acquisition, the Library invited the five children of Max Roach; Daryl, Maxine, Raoul, Dara and Ayo, along with Janus Adams Roach and poet Sonia Sanchez to help discuss and celebrate the legacy of Max Roach.
