"Maud Cuney Hare (1874-1936) was a biographer, playwright, and musician, but it is her work as a musicologist that is perhaps most valuable today. Negro Musicians and Their Music, published shortly before Hare's death, is one of the first detailed histories of African, Anglo-African, and African-American contributions to world music and offers profiles of a host of black composers and artists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
