What We Do

The activities of the CBMR include research services, fellowships, education and engagement programming, performance programming, and publications. These diverse services and resources impact a wide range of audiences and constituencies, including academic researchers; musicians, composers, arrangers, and conductors; high school and grade school teachers and students; journalists and music writers; and filmmakers and television producers. The CBMR Library and Archives, the conferences, and CBMR performance programs are open to the public.

CBMR also provides informational services for a growing international group of CBMR Associates who help to support the center's valuable activities and receive a range of benefits tailored for anyone interested in learning about the rich, global history of black music.
