Book Description:
Madame E. Azalia Hackley was an African American classical singer, social worker, writer, philanthropist, and activist who championed the use of African American spirituals among her own people as a tool for social change. Her efforts led to the use of spirituals as freedom songs during the Civil Rights Movement. This work uses newspaper accounts and archive studies documenting Madame Hackley's tours cross coutry and abroad to rasie funds for African American classical musicians. It shows Hackley's intense devotion to her African American roots, as she easily could have passed for white. Nevertheless, she traveled throughout the South in 'Jim Crow' railway cars by choice. This work also recovers several of her influential published works, including 'A guide to voice culture' (1909); 'The coloured girl beautiful' (1916), an etiquette book for African American women desiring professional jobs; and 'hints to young coloured artists' a series of acticles designed to help young African American classical musicans succed.
