ZENOBIA POWELL PERRY (1908-2004) was a fascinating and prolific American composer
and pianist. She wrote songs, piano pieces, chamber works, an opera, and music for
orchestra and symphonic wind band. Of African-American and Creek Indian descent,
her unique life story is about perseverance and determination—how to pursue your
dreams, regardless of your race, gender, age, or economic background. It shows how
individual strength, personal integrity, and courage, as well as self-expression through
community involvement, determine how one person can make a difference in her
family, community, and nation.
