Why Black music matters

Its African American Music Appreciation Month in June. Originally decreed by President Jimmy Carter in 1979, as Black Music Month former President Barack Obama renamed the month.

Drawing on spirituals, field hollers and work songs, the blues was developed. Nearly all American music today is influenced by the blues: Jazz, Country, Rock. Hip-hop/rap is one of the few American musical styles that is not influenced by the blues but was also pioneered by African Americans.  25 days ago
