In Dean Dixon: Negro at Home, Maestro Abroad, conductor and scholar Rufus Jones Jr. brings to light a literal treasure trove of unpublished primary sources to tell the compelling story of this great American conductor. A testament to Dixon s resolve, this first-ever full-length biography of this American musical hero chronicles Dixon s musical upbringing, beginnings as a conductor, painful decision to leave his own country, rise to fame in Europe and his triumphant stand twenty-one years later when he returned to the United States to serve as a model for aspiring Black classical musicians. Dean Dixon: Negro at Home, Maestro Abroad will interest anyone who wants to know more about Black American history, American musical culture, and Black American concert music and musicians."

Rufus Jones, Jr. is an orchestral conductor, published author, and educator. His research has focused on African American classical musicians, and he has written extensively on the music of William Grant Still, which resulted in a three-volume music edition of his chamber music. Dr. Jones has conducted orchestras of all levels for over two decades and is in demand as a guest conductor, clinician, and adjudicator.
