The Program operates as a joint project of the Music and the Africana Studies Departments, in partnership with the CSU Dominguez Hills Library/Archives.

This Program has emerged from the work of Dr. Hansonia Caldwell, professor Emeritus of Music at CSU Dominguez Hills, and author of two major books in the field -- African American Music, A Chronology: 1619-1995, and African American Music, Spirituals. Dr. Hansonia Caldwell serves as the director of the program, working with professional and student staff and an Advisory Board.
