The Hatch-Billops Musicians

About the Exhibit

This exhibit is designed to promote educational and scholarly use of the Hatch-Billops Oral history of Black Culture digital collection which is fully accessible to researchers while on site or logged in via the proxy server. While the entire online collection is comprised of 237 interviews with artists from a wide variety of artistic fields, this exhibit highlights the 24 interviews with professional musicians.

For more information about the Hatch-Billops Oral History of Black Culture at CCNY, please visit this research guide.  

If you have any questions, suggestions or would like to contribute to this resource by assisting with interview transcriptions, please contact Michael Crowley (mcrowley at ccny.cuny.edu). This exhibit is a work in progress and new content will be added as time allows.
