D: James Greeson | USA | 58 min | Arkansas Festival Premiere

In 1933,  Arkansas native Florence Price made music history as the first African-American woman to have her music performed by a major symphony orchestra when the Chicago Symphony played her Symphony in E minor at the Chicago World's Fair. Throughout her life, Price interacted with many important African-American leaders, including W.E.B. DuBois, Langston Hughes, Kathryn Dunham, and particularly singer Marian Anderson. This film tells the inspirational story of this gifted woman who triumphed over prejudice and preconceptions.
