In honor of Black History Month, the Rachel Barton Pine Foundation has made several pages of its Coloring Book of Black Composers available for free. This coloring book is a part of the foundation’s Music by Black Composers project, which aims to bring classical music written by black composers into a wider global consciousness by focusing on awareness and access. In addition to the coloring book, the MBC project is publishing a growing line of sheet music.


The pages included highlight the lives and work of Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson, Chiquinha Gonzaga, and Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges.
