Meet the Musicians: Joplin
By Dennis Kobray
approx. 54 min.

Mr. Kobray seeks to bring to life a great musical figure from history for the viewer to meet and get to know. Major events and turning points in Joplin's life (through the eyes of a friend) are relived and their effects upon the composer's music are explained and demonstrated.
With hard work and determination, Joplin triumphed over the racial prejudice of his time.
