Black History Month Celebration #8 Exploring the History of Black Music. This series will cover those making history and historical Black Figures, events, activities and of course music related if possible. We should remember and not lose what we accomplished. Very proud of my South Orange folks for honoring Black History Month in a big way for 2021. I am a little bit of the history now so cool.

Celebrating Black Music Month
Yes we get to go and celebrate again, Every June.
June is African American Music Appreciation Month! Created by President Jimmy Carter in 1979, this month celebrates the African American musical influences that comprise an essential part of our nation’s treasured cultural heritage. Smithsonian
The influence of Black artists and musicians is present everywhere from music to art, culture, film, and television. This month in honor of Black Music Month, we embarked on a journey to explore how Black music impacted not only key moments in history, but also the artists and songs that we listen to today borrowing from the teachings of our Blues Schoolhouse program.
