    Hall Johnson was a choral conductor, composer, and arranger of spirituals. Through his arrangements, writings, and performances of the Hall Johnson Choir, he raised the profile of the African American spiritual as a significant art form. The collection contains holograph and manuscript scores for several of his compositions and arrangements, works by other composers, concert programs, scripts, and legal and financial papers related to his estate. Titles in this collection contain demeaning language.
