Hello and Welcome to the Afrigeneas Family Jeffrey!
Thanks so much for the information and of course about your book:
"Edmund Thornton Jenkins: The Life and Times of an American Black Composer, 1894-1926"
I found another listing that refers to your article on Afro-British Composer Taylor-Coleridge on the Afri-Classical webpage.
"The Foremost Musician of His Race: Samuel Coleridge-Taylor of England, 1875-1912"
Please click on the link below and scan to the upper mid-section of the page for Jeffrey's quote about Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.
Jeffrey, It was a pleasure as always to see you at this year's Charleston Jazz Iniative. I was also pleased to introduce you to Afrigeneas' Military Forum Manager, Bennie McRae at his book launch and reception at Avery Research Center.
Everyone, please click on the link below for information about Jeffrey's support of the CHARLESTON JAZZ INITIATIVE and Bennie's book launch.
One last question for you Jeffrey...what was the inspiration for your study of Black British musicians?
