Carr Presents ‘The State of Black Music Report’ for the National Museum of African American Music 

Curb College Associate Dean Dr. Cheryl Slay Carr was selected to lead, research and present “The State of Black Music Report” for the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM).  

The report was commissioned in concert with NMAAM’s mission: “…to tell the story that has never been told before—one that shares how African Americans play a critical role in shaping our country’s heritage and culture…” Carr was selected in response to the Museum’s request for proposals to develop the report along with co-research Dr. Morgan Bryant, assistant professor at St. Joseph’s University.

Preliminary findings were presented during the Museum’s State of Black Music Summit as part of celebration of Black Music Month, and included an interview with Henry Hicks, President and CEO of NMAAM.
