This is the last week of African-American Music Appreciation Month. And what a month it has been. 2020 is shaping up to be Black History Year.
I am honored to offer one more playlist for this final week of June. I hope you enjoy this freewheeling and eclectic collection of Black woman vocalists.
Here is almost a century of recordings spanning Blues, Gospel, Jazz, Soul, and Hip-Hop. Yes. You’ll find Beyoncé, Missy Elliott, Mahaila Jackson, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Erykah Badu, Big Mama Thornton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Brittany Howard and more all on this playlist.
Coming in at over 9 hours, it is barely the tip of the iceberg of the musical offering and impact of African-American women.
We’ve been keeping it American musicians here in June, though next week I plan to sling some reggae music. Sistas and brothas from Jamaica, UK, and Africa have had a thing or two to say about protest and conscious music as well.
Until next time! Stay safe, sane, and kind.
