TedxNashville - Roy Wooten - Black Mozart Project

Roy "Futureman" Wooten will tell the story of an epic rise from slavery to chivalry by a mixed-race revolutionary of 18th century France who was sometimes called "The Black Mozart." His real name is Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, and, tragically, the fullness of his legacy has been overlooked due to the fact that, despite everything he did right, his color was wrong. Saint-Georges' efforts to reconcile these differences are most exemplified in his final orchestra, The Circle of Harmony. Today, Futureman continues the Circle of Harmony, which -- through art -- demonstrates to the world the beauty of diversity and co-existence.
