Composition in Black and White

The foundation of Josephine's belief that her brilliant interracial child would be able to overcome the barriers of American segregation was a failure, although Philippa was a well-known role model for African American women, the doors to the white-dominated classical music arena remained resolutely closed in America. When Philippa performed in Texas, at the Southern University in 1949, Philippa hoped some of the Cogdells would come hear her perform. But there were only ten whites in the audience, including three white music critics. In the middle of March 1963, Philippa landed in Lisbon and five days later, she opened a bank account under the name of Felipa Monterro y Schuyler. She has no scheduled concerts in Lisbon but through connections, she had the chance to perform two unofficial recitals for the director of the Music Conservatory.
