The 1964 Berlin Jazz Festival was the first of the series. There were names like Miles Davis, Sonny Stitt, and Roland Kirk on the bill and it stood as a celebration of the genre.Although civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. did not attend the festival in person, his address appeared in the program. King, a man who was fighting so hard against the divisions in his own country, was making the connections between the music and the movement.“God has wrought many things out of oppression,” begins his essay. “He has endowed his creatures with the capacity to create—and from this capacity has flowed the sweet songs of sorrow and joy.”
