Dr. Edward W. Hardy, a critically acclaimed composer-violinist and author, has published a compendium of works to celebrate this year's Juneteenth holiday. This publication includes his recent dissertation, A Compendium of Three Musical Works Inspired by the African American Experience: Recordings, Commentary, and Pedagogical Observations, along with three recordings of his original music and his children's coloring book titled Color the Legacy: A Coloring Book of African American Cultural Pioneers, inspired by the iconic figures in his dissertation.

Dr. Hardy, a recent DownBeat award-winning graduate from the University of Northern Colorado, expressed his enthusiasm: "I am so excited to share my work and ideas with you! I hope you and your beautiful family and friends enjoy my dissertation, the coloring book, and my recordings of my original music: Evolution for solo violin, Strange Fruit for string quartet, and my song cycle Born Free for voice, violin, and piano! I included my new children's coloring book in the download to give kids something to do while parents and guardians are reading my paper. And the best part: this download is offered as a pay-what-you-want option! While you can download everything for free, your financial support at any tier is greatly appreciated."

The dissertation is available on the Dissertations & Theses @ University of Northern Colorado and ProQuest One Academic databases. However, the complete package, including the dissertation, recordings, and coloring book, is exclusively available on Dr. Hardy's website, The package is offered in two versions: one for digital use on an iPad or tablet, and the other for printing.
