The Caged Bird: The Life and Music of Florence B. Price
United States, 2015, 57 min., Color, English
BLOCK 12 In 1933 Little Rock native Florence Price made music history as the first African-American woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra when the Chicago Symphony premiered her Symphony in E minor at the Chicago World's Fair. This is the inspiring story of a gifted woman's triumph over prejudice and preconceptions.
