Key conversations expand beyond Roy’s personal story and enter the terrain of what it means to be an artist, particularly in America. HARGROVE dives into the significance of Black music in America while offering a glimpse into the politics of power and race in the music industry. Roy’s narrative reverberates within today’s Black Lives Matter movement with issues of ethics, exploitation, and empathy called into question.

Music icons Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Yasiin Bey, Questlove, Sonny Rollins, Wynton Marsalis, Robert Glasper, and others pay tribute to Hargrove’s legacy as an acclaimed composer in HARGROVE. First-time director Eliane Henri

unveils an epic love letter to Black music with a rare up-close and personal look at an artist whose peers deem a musical prophet. HARGROVE further documents Roy’s impact on Black music and his place in the history of jazz.
