Eva Jessye (1895-1992) was committed to disseminating music by African Americans through her choral concert performances and choral compositions. This study will examine and interpret Jessye’s programming practices as identified in concert programs representing fifty-five years of her professional choral career. The analysis of the tenets of her programming found in printed programs available between the years 1927-1982 will provide a model that can inform choral musicians who plan to program and perform music by African Americans.
