The Black Chicago Renaissance Women: Lives & Legacies in Music
In celebration of International Women’s Day (8 March 2020), Dr. Samantha Ege presents an hour-long lecture-recital. Therein, she traces the lives and legacies of Black women composers in Chicago. The music of Florence B. Price, Nora Douglas Holt, Margaret Bonds, and Betty Jackson King represents the foundations of a vibrant creative network. Dr. Ege contextualises this in the transformative movement of the Negro Renaissance.
