In these segments, Judith Still talks about some of her father’s music played on "From the Top" a few weeks ago.

William Grant Still

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.
