Dorothy Maynor and the Harlem School of the Arts. The Diva and the Dream
1993 0-7734-9377-8
The first full-length investigation of the life and accomplishments of one of America's most distinguished concert singers. After her retirement from the concert stage, Dorothy Maynor established the Harlem School of the Arts. The book describes Maynor's advocacy of work and commitment in three dimensions: as artist, academician, and altruist. Much of the research of this book has been drawn from interviews with Miss Maynor, with her peers and former classmates, employees and students of the Harlem School of the Arts during Maynor's administration, and from numerous libraries and archives throughout the United States.
