On June 10 1949 the world premiere of "Ouanga" was performed in South Bend Indiana. "Ousnga" is considered the first completely African-American opera. Yet, this was the only full production ever performed, There were concert versions but no fully produced production. Even the auditorium where it was first produced, South Bend Central High, is in great disrepair. My dream is to see a fully produced Ouanga performed again in the South Bend Central auditorium to that end I have started to research not only the production but the climate in South Bend at that time. Hopefully,I can publicize at least Clarence Cameron White the composer. I was a student at South Bend Central and like so many whites ignored this cultural event.
