Abstract: The purpose of this document is twofold: (1) to provide a comprehensive and available source of organ music by black composers and, (2) to acknowledge the composers and their compositions. A substantial amount of existing organ music by black composers is being overlooked mainly because of the lack of knowledge of its existence. The existence of a bibliography of this music would draw attention to the many works that are available and increase public awareness of lesser known composers. A bibliography of organ music by black composers does not exist. This author has addressed the problem by compiling an annotated bibliography which includes the following: (1) the identification of as many composers as possible, (2) a brief biography of each composer, (3) a complete listing of each composer's works, whether published or in manuscript, and (5) comments pertinent to the music.
