Playlist of the week: Music is Black History

Black culture has brought jazz, blues, soul, funk, house, garage, rock ‘n’ roll and so much more to the music scene. Basically, all American music has been inspired by Black music. Local Black artists have brought these genres and live performances to the Carolinas. This playlist embodies just some of the many Black talents that reside or have origins in the Carolinas.

Black culture and history are important to preserve, so what better way to do so than through listening to music artists such as Dizzy Gillespie and Jeezy. Tune in to keep Black history playing past February.
