In this presentation, Dr. Kathy Bullock will share stories and works of African American Women composers who, although rarely mentioned in history books, have made valuable and significant contributions to the music of the United States. From the early 1900s to present day, we will explore the music and the messages of hope and empowerment that these phenomenal women have created.

She continues to perform, conduct workshops, direct choirs, and teaching courses in African American Music throughout the United States, Europe and Africa, sharing hope and joy during these challenging times.
