This collective of dynamic and visionary artists formed the AACM to meet their emergent needs to expose and showcase their original compositions and to create an outlet for the development and performance of their music.. Since its inception, one mission of the AACM has been to provide an atmosphere conducive to the development of its member artists and to continue the AACM legacy of providing leadership and vision for the development of creative music.. The AACM first coined the phrase Great Black Music to describe its unique direction in music.. The AACM pays homage to the diverse styles of expression within the body of Black Music in the USA, Africa and throughout the world..
