    BLM - a tribute to Black Music


    Why is it that people with darker skin color are still victims of racial discrimination, harassment, and violent attacks?

    Imagine contemporary music without the musicians, singers, and songwriters with African roots? This world would be much poorer.

    Below is a (incomplete) list of black musicians, singers, and songwriters intended to remind us how much they have influenced the fabric of our global culture.

    Behind each link in the list below is a song from the respective artist on YouTube. So put on your headphones, skip the commercials and listen to a cross-section of the best that pop music has to offer. Be prepared for a journey through time that spans more than 60 years.
