Unbound Genius: Black Composers and Performers and the Great Migration

Unbound Genius: Black Composers and Performers and the Great Migration Online

After the Civil War and World War I, many black classical artists journeyed from Jim Crow America to the North to explore and expand their musical talent. The path of these great artists was fraught with obstacles that proved no match for their genius. Within the socio-political context of a rapidly changing America, author and musician, Rosalyn Story, will discuss how these artists endured setbacks of racism, poverty, and gender discrimination to navigate a complex cultural landscape, and change the face of American classical music. This program will be taking place through the Microsoft Team platform. Participants using their smartphones or tablets will need to download the Microsoft Team app to participate. If participants using their computers will not need to download the Microsoft Teams app.
