Nicholas George Julius Ballanta

This entry is part 10 of 15 in the series Black Classical Music History

Ballanta has a Wikipedia article. There’s a World Heritage Encyclopedia article with a reasonable reference section, a Facebook fan page which is mostly empty, and an interesting legal question about his legacy. His musical scores can be found in a number of libraries but not on IMSLP, as Ballanta died in 1963 and his works are still in copyright. Alas, no photos I can find.
