The African-American Jazz
Preservation Society of Pittsburgh
How You Can Help
The African American Jazz Preservation Society of Pittsburgh is an outgrowth of the realization that a great deal of the rich cultural contributions made to the genre of jazz originated from African-American musicians who were born, raised, living or have lived in Pittsburgh, including Earl "Fatha" Hines, Billy Eckstine, Billy Strayhorn, Mary Lou Williams, Erroll Garner and George Benson, to name only a few. The need to preserve, disseminate and promote the history, accomplishments and music of the African American jazz artist cannot be over emphasized.
