For this week’s @usnatarchives #19ForThe19th challenge, Women in the Arts, we’re honoring American conductor, Eva Jessye. Active during the Harlem Renaissance, Jessye was the first African American woman to receive international distinction as a choral conductor. Her collection is available for viewing by appointment at our Archives Research Center and make sure to check out our GLAM Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning’s digital collections available at glam.auctr.edu
