John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie was a jazz musician who pioneered a new style of jazz music, known as bebop, in the 1940s. This book, written for junior youth, chronicles Dizzy’s life, beginning with his childhood in South Carolina, his move to New York City, and his eventual travels around the world. Dizzy Gillespie became a Bahá’í in 1968 and strove to be of service to others through his unique gift in music.


Dizzy once wrote, “The highest role is the role of service to humanity, and if I can make that, then I’ll be happy.” We invite you to open this book and read more about this Change Maker, who left an enduring legacy for the world.


This is the second book in the Change Maker Series, highlighting people connected with the Bahá’í Faith who worked to bring about social change. The first book in the Change Maker Series can be found here.
