Happy Monday again, you all.
Well, it is always African American Music Appreciation Month (aka Black Music Month) around these parts! We celebrate Black music every week here at Good Black News.
It’s been more than a year since I started making weekly playlists honoring African American music in its many forms.
If you’ve been tuning in with any regularity, you know I am no stranger to a free-wheeling and hours-long playlist.
When it comes to a collection that tracks Gospel, Blues, Jazz, R&B, Rock, Hip-Hop, and everything in between, this one was bound to be a long one:
Have a great week.
