Scope and Contents of the Materials

The records in this collection were compiled by composer Carman Moore, who served the Society as Secretary-Treasurer through most of its short existence.

Collection Historical Note

The Society of Black Composers was founded by a group of composers in the New York City area in 1968. The aim of the Society was to promote the works of contemporary black composers in order to educate the community at large. The Society held several concerts and residencies before financial problems forced it to become inactive around 1973.
