Testimonial
"OperaCréole brilliantly reclaims the almost forgotten works of nineteenth-century composers of African descent, sharing their artistry with local, national, and international audiences. I thank them for bringing a hidden history to life in a way no other medium can touch. Their stories of Black resistance and achievement help us imagine and shape a more just future. Brava!"
