'Bayou-Maharajah': A special LGBT+ History Month screening and discussion
Lecture Room 103 |
UCL – Institute of the Americas
51 Gordon Square | London | WC1H 0PQ | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
To mark LGBT+ History Month, UCL Americas Research Network is collaborating with UCL's LGBTQ Research Network, qUCL, to host a screening of Bayou Maharajah followed by a discussion around themes raised in the documentary and a drinks reception.
Bayou Maharajah explores the life, times and music of piano legend James Booker, who Dr. John described as 'the best black, gay, one-eyed junkie piano genius New Orleans has ever produced.' Lily Keber's roller coaster portrait traces Booker's life from his early years as a chart-topping child prodigy, to his star-studded years touring and playing as a sideman, through his outrageous solo career in America and Europe.
