Celebrating Black Music Month

In addition to bringing in the summer season..June is the month we celebrate by paying tribute to the rich musical history and honor the many traditions African-American musicians, singers, and composers have made to the culture of our nation and to the world. Did you know that former President Jimmy Carter decreed on June 7, 1979 as the month to celebrate black music?! and other Presidents have followed including George W. Bush who issused a proclamation in June of 2005 (www.usgovinfo.about.com)  ****type in the search engine black music month proclamation**** 

Who are some of your favorite artists/favorite songs for the month that recognizes the powerful, moving, and soulful music that speaks to EVERY heart, lifting us in times of sorrow and helping us celebrate in times of joy!!
