True Witness, a 30-minute choral cantata, which sets to music the letters, speeches and poems of African-American female poets, activists and civil rights leaders, recognizes the notable contributions of African-American women who helped steer the course of this nation’s civil rights movement. Through the interpretation of their words, set to music, this project will urge audiences, students, scholars and the community to consider their historical significance in the struggle for civil rights in this country.  Project originally conceived by Anne Harley.
