Gabrielle Williams’ IME


My name is Gabrielle Williams and  I am a freshman from Macon, Georgia. I am an Early Childhood Education major. After graduating from Spelman College I plan to continue my education in a Masters Program to advance my career as an educator.


I am open to learn more about African American music. Every time I have heard about African American music it is limited to Hip-Hop. I am very curious and open to learn about African Americans in different genres of music


Although I don’t play any instruments I have been exposed to various genres of music. As a child I was always at high school band practices due to my older brother’s involvement. In my last few years of high school I took two chorus classes and also volunteered with the band after school. Since I have graduated high school I no longer participate in any music related activities but music is still a big part of my daily life.
