Celeste Day Moore.

Associate Professor of History Celeste Day Moore recently gave a public lecture in French at the Bibliothèque Municipale in Lyon, France, to mark the donation of Louis Thomas Achille's collections of African American religious music to the municipal library.

Moore's recent award-winning book, Soundscapes of Liberation, builds on her research into the life and work of the Martiniquan educator and author Achille, whose experiences at Howard University in the 1930s inspired him in 1948 to create a choir that specialized in the performance of spirituals in France. The March 16 event was featured in Le Monde and Le Progres.
