Margaret Bonds At 100 - Still That Rarity, A Black Female Classical Composer
"Margaret Bonds, who died in 1972, is perhaps near the top of the very short list of African-American female composers. Thanks to her partnerships with Langston Hughes and soprano Leontyne Price and others, she's remembered in some circles as an important figure in American composition. But, mostly, she's been forgotten." NPR 03/03/13 (includes audio)
