Traces the life of the well-known ragtime pianist and composer who wrote over 500 pieces of music, including a ballet and two operas. Until Scott Joplin, ragtime music was regarded as low class and unrefined. His compositions--such as "Maple Leaf Rag"--helped ragtime earn national prominence in the early 1900s, but it was not until the 1970s, that Joplin was award posthumously the Pulitzer Prize for his opera Treemonisha.
