In researching the choral music of Black choral composers, Blake created a compact, sharable document titled 31 Black Choral Composers That Should Be On Your Programs And Playlists: a non-comprehensive list, compiled to help introduce classical listeners and ensemble directors to a repertoire that perhaps hasn’t been given the spotlight it deserves. The list is attached below, and can be downloaded as a pdf, shared, and/or printed.
