About Reginald Robinson

Robinson’s music has been used in theater and film, and he served as a contributing historian for the 2010 documentary Chicago’s Black Metropolis. In 2004, he was awarded the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Award for his innovative ragtime piano works and music research. In addition to concertizing, Robinson is internationally known for his lectures at colleges and universities, which has aided in preserving the legacy of African-American history.
