More about Florence:

Learning music at an early age from her mother, Florence gave her first piano performance at age four. After graduating high school at sixteen, she was educated at the New England Conservatory of Music (in Boston). During her lifetime, she struggled for recognition as a composer, due to entrenched racism and sexism. While during her time many women were performers, women composers were still a novelty.

In her now infamous letter to the conductor of the Boston Symphony in 1943, Florence wrote, “To begin with I have two handicaps – those of sex and race. I am a woman; and I have some Negro blood in my veins. Knowing the worst, then, would you be good enough to hold in check the inclination to regard a woman’s composition as long on emotionalism but short on virility and thought content; until you shall have examined some of my work? As to the handicap of race, may I relieve you by saying that I neither expect nor ask any concession on that score. I should like to be judged on merit alone.”
