Mission: Billy Strayhorn Songs, Inc. was established
in 1997 to bring recognition to Billy Strayhorn who, as one
of America's greatest composers, has made a major contribution
to the world of music; to provide printed music of Billy Strayhorn
enabling the study his legacy and performance of his compositions;
to enlighten and inspire the public regarding Strayhorn's
freedom to be himself; and to bring into focus this man who
was known to have lived by four freedoms namely, freedom from
hate, freedom from self pity, freedom from fear of doing something
that would benefit someone else more than it would himself
and freedom from the pride that could make him feel that he
was better than others.
