In November 2015, Black music therapists and music therapy students gathered together for a networking session at the American Music Therapy Association national conference. What was initially thought would be a gathering of 7 or 8, ended up as a gathering of 17 Black music therapists and degree-seeking students from across the U.S. For many, this number may seem small, but for Black music therapists and students, moments like these were few and far between. The conversations that grew from the networking session led to the formation of a Facebook group for Black music therapy professionals and students that soon totaled over 100 members. One year later, the Black Music Therapy Network, Inc. was incorporated with the aim of fostering continued connectivity amongst a vibrant Black music therapy community and supporting their educational development and professional advancement.
