Nadia Boulanger’s letters describing her first tour of the United States in 1925 provide a window onto a defining moment in her life. This chapter offers translated and annotated installments from the travel journal Boulanger created during her trip, which she sent to her mother Raïssa Boulanger at regular intervals. Jeanice Brooks’s introduction situates the journal in the context of Boulanger’s professional aspirations and developments, while Gayle Murchison’s afterword explores how the country Boulanger encountered was structured by segregation and how her understanding of it was filtered through race.

Keywords:   Nadia Boulanger, Raïssa Boulanger, Lili Boulanger, American music, race, segregation
