Colby Jazz Collective

Drummer Max Roach’s We Insist! (subtitled Freedom Now Suite) was one of several jazz compositions from the early years of the civil rights movement that explicitly addressed the topic of racial inequality. First recorded in 1960, the work consists of five movements centered around the Emancipation Proclamation and the growing African independence movements of the 1950s.
