June is African-American Music Appreciation Month!
Originally started as Black Music Month by President Jimmy Carter, who on June 7, 1979, decreed that June would be the month of black music. Since then, presidents have announced to Americans to celebrate Black Music Month. For each year of his term, President Barack Obama has announced the observance under a new title, African-American Music Appreciation Month.
So all this month we EXCLUSIVELY bring you our picks of black artists that have resonated with us through time. Check back here under the Music tab to see who we have to highlight for their musical contributions. In this coming week we honor:
Mary J. Blige
