Sue Graham Mingus (1930-2022)
Sue Graham Mingus passed away on September 24th. She was a courageous and talented woman who worked and lived with her husband Charles, and then championed his music and legacy for decades after his death. Here is a remembrance of Sue Graham Mingus on Fresh Air, including an interview that Terry Gross did with Sue in 2002.
We were able to get in contact with Sue in 2007, and we are grateful to have known her. She donated a signed Mingus Awareness Project poster to us, which was then auctioned off for benefit purpose. She read passages from her memoir Tonight at Noon: A Love Story during a MAP concert in 2009, to a receptive and engaged audience at The Hideout.
