Since the first African American Symposium of 1985, Black music research has surged with no sign of waning. What at one time represented a niche interest in the academy is now recognized as one of the most energized, rigorous, and popular fields of inquiry in the millennium. The studies on this panel showcase new and on-going scholarship on Black musicians who have made an indelible mark on the American musical landscape from the nineteenth century to the present.
