In these segments, Judith Still talks about some of her father’s music played on "From the Top" a few weeks ago.
Judith is the daughter of African-American composer William Grant Still. Her mother, Verna Arvey, was the composer’s wife, librettist, and publicist. Verna Arvey was white and Jewish - which presented some challenges along the way. Judith talks about some of the prejudice she and her family faced.
