Mary Cardwell Dawson’s Legacy to be Honored in D.C.. The Denyce Graves Foundation’s initiative called Hidden Voices says it plans to tell the stories of diverse classical vocal artists whose stories have been omitted from American History. And now they plan to share the story of Mary Cardwell Dawson. Dawson was a musician, teacher, and the founding director of the National Negro Opera Company in Pittsburgh, PA. Her goal was to bring opera to African American audiences. She also organized opera guilds in Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Newark, New York, and Washington, D.C. training hundreds of African American youths in classical music and arts.
