"The Storm is Passing Over" Exhibit Presented at FSU's Roper Gallery

"The Storm is Passing Over," an exhibit celebrating the musical life of Maryland's African American Community from Emancipation to Civil Rights, will be presented in Frostburg State University's Stephanie Ann Roper Gallery in the Fine Arts Building from Monday, Sept. 10, to Wednesday, Oct. 3.

A public reception will be held Friday, Sept. 28, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

One of the most endangered resources in Maryland are materials documenting the musical history of the African-American community. Peabody Institute Archivist Elizabeth Schaaf has been interviewing musicians and their families, collecting oral histories, precious photographs and other cherished memorabilia and has put together this dramatic exhibition of photographs, vintage recordings and documents.

"The Storm is Passing Over" shows much of the wealth of material that has been gathered together at Peabody. It is hoped that this exhibition will demonstrate the importance of continuing the search for lost materials and encouraging preservation.
