Percussionist William Hooker, the genre-bending free jazz legend,  will improvise a soundtrack to pioneering African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux's 1920 silent film classic—originally advertised as a chance to come see "the annihilation of the Ku Klux Klan."

This event is part of the "Free Jazz from the Sanctuary" series and co-sponsored by the Arts Department at RPI and the Albany Sonic Arts Collective, with support from the NY State Council on the Arts and the NY State Music Fund, established by the New York State Attorney General at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors.

The Sanctuary for Independent Media is located at 3361 6th Avenue in north Troy (at 101st Street).
