Just over a century ago, the minister of Atlanta's historically black First Congregational Church created an event called the All Colored Music Festival of Atlanta.”  

Today, the inspiration to showcase African American concert talent lives on in the annual Atlanta Music Festival, being held this week at Emory University.

Recently, I spoke with Dr. Dwight Andrews, who is Professor of Music at Emory, Senior Minister at First Congregational Church, and Artistic Director for the festival.
