In light of the Black Lives Matter movement, musical ensembles and academic institutions are at long last beginning to "do the work" of studying and performing the music of Black composers, past and present, on a platform equal to that of the Western classical tradition (Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, etc.). This lecture will partake in a brief survey of the lives and music of Black composers from around the world from the 18th century to new music being written by today's composers. Disclaimer: This course will be taught through the lens of a white man who has committed to fighting against systemic racism within the musical community.
Often described as “Architect to the Stars,” Paul Williams left an indelible mark on architecture during a prolific career that spanned almost 60 years. The first Black member and Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, he became known for designs that were stylized and elegant. He had an extraordinary capability with Southern California historical styles, yet he was equally comfortable with modern design. His vast body of work stretches from Beverly Hills and New York to Paris and Colombia, including such luminary clients as Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Tyrone Power and Lon Chaney. This class will explore and illustrate the architectural legacy left by Williams and discuss the inspirational contributions he made to each city his designs enriched.
