Summary:
Inspire your students with this true story of Thomas Bethune, a blind Civil War-era slave born in 1849. Bethune possessed absolute pitch and a marvelous memory; over his lifetime, he developed an astounding 7,000-piece repertoire-all from listening to others play for him. Although indentured all his life, "Blind Tom" found freedom in music, music that he composed and even played for audiences in both Europe and America. A poignant dramatization of an extraordinary talent in impossible times, this video will foster a deep appreciation for Bethune's music and African-American music in general.
