Before There Was Mozart

Here is another great read about music in Black History that I found at my recent trip to the library.

This literary offering by Husband and wife team, Lesa Cline-Ransome and James E. Ransome tells the interesting story of Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de Saint-George who was the son of a slave and Slave Owner on an island in the West Indies. He became a great musician who played for the King and Queen of France and inspired Mozart himself with his beautiful music.
