Merit, Not Sympathy, Wins: The Life and Times of Blind Boone By Mary Collins Barile and Christine Montgomery
2012 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 1612480659 | PDF | 52 MB

In post-Reconstruction America, John William "Blind" Boone, an illiterate, itinerate musician, overcame obstacles created by disability, exploitative managers, and racial prejudice to become one of the country's most beloved concert performers. Melissa Fuell-Cuther's out-of-print biography, Blind Boone: His Life and Achievements, relates the highlights of Boone s harrowing journey and also testifies to the struggles of many African Americans during the Jim Crow era. With the initial publication of the Boone biography in 1915, Fuell-Cuther broke ground as the first American black author to write about the life of a black musician. As a member of Boone s concert company, Fuell-Cuther provided firsthand knowledge of Boone's early years, his career performing tours cross the country, and perhaps most importantly, his professional and personal relationship with John Lange, whom many at the time considered the best entertainment manager, black or white, in the country. The story of Blind Boone is revitalized in this annotated edition of the biography, accompanied by essays describing the Missouri environment in which the artist lived, his place within the landscape of American music, and his achievements after publication of the second edition of the biography. This book recalls the almost insurmountable barriers of discrimination early black performers faced with perseverance, resilience, and courage to carve a path for future generations.
