Percussionist William Hooker, the genre-bending Free Jazz legend, will improvise a sound track to pioneering African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux’s 1920 silent film classic, The Symbol of the Unconquered, originally advertised as a chance to come see “the annihilation of the Ku Klux Klan.”

Co-sponsored by the Department of the Arts at RPI and the Albany Sonic Arts Collective, with support from the Presenting program of the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York State Music Fund, established by the New York State Attorney General at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.
