African American Music Association Tabs Emmy-Winning Producer as Executive Director

Beverly Lindsay-Johnson, an Emmy-winning producer/director and entertainment consultant, has been named executive director of the African American Music Association, a D.C.-based nonprofit.

Lindsay-Johnson, who assumed her new post in January, previously served eight years as president of the National Hand Dance Association of Washington, D.C., according to a press release announcing the move.

“I am pleased to join the African American Music Association in its mission to preserve, protect, promote and to foster the continued development of African American music and the legacy of those who compose, record and perform the music,” Lindsay-Johnson said. “It’s important for me to develop programming and public outreach projects which acknowledge African American cultural music traditions in all genres to include gospel, blues, jazz, rhythm and blues, hip-hop and go-go, on both a local and national level.”

Earlier in her career, Lindsay-Johnson produced “Evening Exchange,” a public affairs television program on Howard University Television (WHUT-TV) hosted by Kojo Nnamdi. Overall, she has received 24 television industry awards for her productions at WHUT, the nation’s first African American-owned and -operated PBS station.
