We Insist! Max Roach's Freedom Now Suite, co-authored by Max Roach and Oscar Brown, J. was a pivotal work in the early-'60s African-American protest movement, and continues to be relevant in its message and tenacity. It represents a lesson in living as to how the hundreds of years prior were an unnecessary example of how oppression kept slaves and immigrants in general in their place.

Max Roach’s ambitious We Insist! appeared in 1960, just as the civil rights movement was entering its crucial phase. The album’s mixture of modern jazz, African rhythms and sparse but powerful lyrics (contributed to Oscar Brown J. still has the ability to unsettle and inspire. Its compositions take a critical view of American history from the slavery era onwards, broadening into a larger cry for justice on the African continent.

Re-released following the passing of drummer Max Roach in August 2007, We Insist! Freedom Now Suite (Candid, 1960) remains a work of enduring musical and social importance. Notwithstanding Roach's central role in the creation of bop, or his later hard bop explorations with trumpeter Clifford Brown, it is, by some margin, the most perfectly realised album he recorded. 1960 was the year in which black Americans' struggle for civil rights reached critical mass. Conceived as a suite by Roach, its composer and arranger, the album features a shifting cast of players, with only Roach and singer Abbey Lincoln heard throughout. Three of the five tracks-"Driva' Man," "Freedom Day" and "All Africa"-feature lyrics by Oscar Brown J. sung by Lincoln, who is joined on "All Africa" by Nigerian conga player Michael Olatunji.
