There, you will learn everything there is to know about the piece (MP3 recordings, scores, about the book, interviews, etc.) . Harlem Voices© is a sensational 1920s-era musical that explores present-day issues of racism, LGBTQ issues, inept leadership, African-American military service in WWI, and racial profiling (among many other issues).

She is conflicted by falling in love with a white patron of the racially segregated club where she works in Harlem called the Black Jay Club. I wrote the “book” (play), libretto, and music... the entire creative product.
