Street named for the great drummer Max Roach on his block in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn


Fulfilling Randy Weston's Dream started this petition to Community board 3 in Brooklyn
Max Roach who was one of the greatest musicians to ever live moved to Brooklyn as a child just after the Depression.  His family joined Concord Baptist Church were he first developed his musical talent. 
As a young man he put together bands to play at rent parties to help tenants in his community to pay their rent. While Max Roach was about to attend the prestigious Boys High School, he was invited to play with Duke Ellington. 
He along with Charles Mingus started a Brooklyn based record company at the Putnam Central Jazz club on the upper level. On the main floor of the club, he taught young children music lessons during the day. 
Roach also helped build the Brooklyn Jazz scene, which in it's hay day had over 15 Jazz clubs and many great musicians moved to the Borough as a result. 
Max Roach was part of the fabric that is Bed-Stuy Brooklyn and truly deserves a street named in his honor.
