Judith Anne Still is the daughter of composer William Grant Still and librettist/publicist Verna Arvey.


In an interview with WMUK’s Jack Perlstein, Ms. Still talks about Black History Month and how the reviews of her father’s opera “Troubled Island” (presented at New York’s City Opera) affected him.  Judith also describes what might be a typical day growing up in the Still home.
