Music Resources for Diversity, Equity, and Antiracism @ Pitt

The aim of this research guide is to amplify the repertoire, music, and scholarship about and by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

Overview

The aim of this research guide is to amplify the repertoire, music, and scholarship about and by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC). This guide is a starting point for faculty and instructors who want to

  • decenter their pedagogical practices, performances, concert programming, or research
  • identify resources for bringing diversity, equity, and inclusion into teaching, performance, and research
  • learn more about musical traditions of underrepresented people and groups
  • locate repertoire beyond the Western European music canon

Students may find this guide useful for identifying repertoire beyond the traditional canon and learning about music and musical traditions of BIPOC.

A number of resources in this guide are open access or freely available online, while others can be used to identify repertoire, literature, or other content that may be held by the University Library System or other academic libraries.

Search our library catalog, PittCat or WorldCat (non-ULS Libraries) to locate these items.

This guide is modeled on a similar one compiled by Anna Kijas, Music Librarian, Tufts University.
