Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Author Earl Ofari Hutchinsonabout this book: This book presents a fresh new look at the hitherto hidden contributions of Blacks to the world of classical music."The list of Africans, African-Americans and Afro-European composers, conductors, instrumental performers, and singers," says Hutchinson, "is and always has been, rich, varied, and deep. Sadly, the recognition of this has almost always come in relation to the work of a major European or white American composer."

Hutchinson's aim in It's Our Music Too The Black Experience in Classical Music is not to update a book on blacks and classical music, or list the many notable individual breakthroughs of top flight black classical music performers and composers through the years. Instead he tells the story of how blacks have actually influenced the development, history and structure of classical music in its major varied forms; opera, chamber pieces, symphonies, and concertos. It's a story that's filled with tragedy and triumph, heart break and heroism. This is a book that is a labor of love as well as a fount of information.
