This professor was the internationally renowned Roland Carter, who was Chairman of the music department at Hampton University and director of its internationally acclaimed choir for nearly quarter of a century, and who would later be named UC Foundation Professor of Music at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Today Mr. Carter is also Chairman of the National Association of Negro Musicians (NAMN), which was founded in 1919; it is the oldest organization dedicated to the preservation of African American musicians. A devout advocate of education and disciplinarian, Mr. Carter obviously saw something in Freedom that prompted those timely words of wisdom. Freedom and Professor Roland Carter are still friends today. Within two years of Mr. Carter's advice, Freedom found himself back home as an assistant engineer at Quad Recording Studios in Midtown Manhattan.
