This chapter discusses the legacy of Horace Tapscott for the Underground Musicians and Artists Association (UGMAA) and Pan Afrikan Peoples Arkestra (PAPA). It suggests that Tapscott's passing left a void in the African American community and its arts world. It explains that for almost forty years Tapscott was a continual and visible artistic presence, who created and guided the Arkestra and UGMAA, performed before thousands, and attracted hundreds of artists to support a movement focused on their community. It investigates how Tapscott kept the organizations together and replenished it when there was rarely any money involved.

Keywords:   Horace Tapscott, African American community, arts world, artists
