Wynton appears in a new documentary-film to be out in February
The film, ‘‘A Trumpet at the Walls of Jericho: The Untold Story of Samuel Harrison,” chronicles the life of Harrison, a freed slave and a giant in the antislavery movement. It features a soundtrack by jazz pianist Eric Lewis of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and will be shown on PBS stations in February for Black History Month.
A Trumpet at the Walls of Jericho, portions of which were filmed in Hudson and at Hale’s Farm, is narrated by Ossie Davis.
Wynton also appears in the film, along with WRA archivist and historian Tom Vince, who makes a cameo appearance as a professor in a classroom scene.
