FOR THE DAUGHTERS OF HARLEM: WORKING WITH SOUND

Zosha, alongside Professor Ellie Hisama, was awarded a 2017 seed grant through the Collaborative to Advance Equity through Research (CAETR) for the project For the Daughters of Harlem: Working With Sound. The project will offer opportunities at Columbia for girls and young women of color to engage with music--as composers, improvisers, sound artists, and thinkers--under the guidance of faculty, graduate students, and invited session leaders.

The Collaborative was launched at the White House on November 13, 2015 at the conference “Advancing Equity for Women and Girls of Color: A Research Agenda for the Next Decade.” It is is a national coalition of institutions in the United States committed to taking meaningful action to support and improve research addressing the lives of women and girls of color.
