Stringfield was a ''composer of symphonic works based on American folklore, and Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship winner, conductor, flutist, teacher, and promoter of local and regional musical groups, chiefly in North Carolina.''--Southern Historical Collection at the University of North Carolina. A Negro Parade was written during the summer of 1931 and was first performed on February 7, 1935, by the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hans Kindler. The scene for the parade is described in the front matter, reading, in part, ''With an admission of racial subservience they retrace their steps, singing a converted hymn, 'Let Jesus Lead You, and White Folks Feed You,' and whistling characteristic labor tunes.''
