Collection of African-American Sheet Music.
Department of Special Collections
This collection of over 500 pieces of sheet music contains works written by African-Americans, some of them published by African-American publishers, and includes music by Andy Razaf, Art Tatum, Mary Lou Williams, Thelonius Monk, Thomas Waller, W.C. Handy, Eubie Blake and many others. The collection also contains a broad selection of music with African-American themes, published between 1877-1967. The coon songs, rags, cake walks, blues and other musical examples along with their cover art, form an invaluable tool for the study of cultural history, representing the intersection of attitudes towards race, tastes in vernacular music, marketing tactics of the entertainment industry, and styles of graphic design.
