Project Description

On the major social and political issues of our time, Walter Williams is one of America’s most important and provocative thinkers. He has come to believe that it has been the welfare state that has done to Black Americans what slavery could never do: destroy the Black family.

PBS is premiering a new film on this controversial man, and I was honored to compose the music for this film. The music score really was a joy to compose, because it gave me a chance to create music in a number of different styles for the same project. Samples are below.

“One More Day”

“Down South Hopeful”

“City Movement”

“60’s Tension”

“Soft and Easy”

“Williams Piano”

“Fifties Prom”
