Saturday's world premiere of the documentary film "Roger Humphries: Pass It On" at the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild attracted more than 300 guests including Mayor Bill Peduto, guild CEO Bill Strickland, Esther Bush of the Urban League of Pittsburgh, James and Pamela Johnson of the Afro American Music Institute, Yvonne Young of the Jazz Workshop of Pittsburgh, and Harry Clark, former principal of CAPA. Moviegoers enjoyed cocktails while being serenaded by two bands including Dwayne Dolphin, Greg Humphries, Max Leake, Tom Wendt and Roby Edwards. But the evening was not just about glitz and glamour. The net proceeds benefited four nonprofits, including Roger L. Humphries Music Scholarship Fund, Afro American Music Institute, Jazz Workshop of Homewood and the Lighthouse Arts.
