Born in 1887 in Little Rock, Arkansas to extraordinary parents, Florence B. Price became the first African-American woman to have her music performed by a major orchestra when the Chicago Symphony premiered her Symphony No. 1 in E Minor at the 1933 World’s Fair. Price’s remarkable achievements during the Jim Crow era are testament to her perseverance and musical gifts.  This is the inspiring story of one woman’s triumph over racism and discrimination.
