(59 folders)
Includes programs, press releases, advertising, posters, draft copies of advertising and press releases, tickets, and newspaper reviews for concerts, musical performances, benefits, and other related events. The series is divided into two subseries: the first contains materials produced or sponsored by the National Negro Opera Company and its immediate predecessors, the National Negro Opera Foundation, and the various city-based National Negro Opera Company-affiliated opera guilds. In addition, it contains materials from concerts given by prominant stars of the National Negro Opera Company such as benefits and fundraising events for future operatic productions. The second subseries contains materials from concerts and events that are not directly related to the National Negro Opera Company, but which Mrs. Dawson attended. These document the African-American concert scene from the 1930s to the early 1960s.
