"The Black Composer," 1972 PBS Special, is now at WGBH & Library of Congress

William Gaddis writes:

The 90-minute PBS Special, THE BLACK COMPOSER (1972), is now available to the public on location at WGBH and the Library of Congress. Deemed a significant creative effort and a historical work, the film (on videotape) of this all-black classical music concert has been digitized and preserved for posterity. Made before the advent of computers, there has never been another program like it. Researchers who are not physically at the Library of Congress or WGBH can request a 2-week password protected, limited access link for viewing online. Thanks be to God for my having lived long enough to see it again.
