White American/Eurocentric structures in journalism, academia and arts criticism have marginalized Black experimental musicians since the 60s during the Black free jazz era with artists like Ornette Coleman, Pharoah Sanders and John Coltrane.
In this lecture, we will explore compositional makeup, style, timbre, and attitude of Black experimental music, its similarities and differences with white experimental music, and how they should naturally converge under a single sonic umbrella.
