"In reality, country music owes its most profound roots to Black musicians and artists"

Outside of corporate classifications, it's easy to see how musical traditions intersect. Happy listening!

Origin of the banjo: The handmade gourd instruments that would become the modern banjo originated in West Africa. Enslaved Africans carried the “banjar” and its music to North America by way of the Caribbean.

The permission slip, shared on social media by one parent, read in part, 'Students will participate and listen to a book written by an African American.'”

No mention of the Harlem Renaissance would be complete without mentioning Zora Neale Hurston. An author and anthropologist, her books include, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Barracoon and Mules and Men, a treasury of Black folklore.

Tired

I am so tired of waiting, Aren’t you,
For the world to become good
And beautiful and kind?
Let us take a knife
And cut the world in two –
And see what worms are eating
At the rind. -

Since the theme of Black History Month 2024 is Black Americans and the arts, today I'm sharing a bit about the Harlem Renaissance.

Spanning from the 1910's - 1930's it was created as a byproduct of The Great Migration of Black Americans seeking work & freedom from the oppressive Jim Crow South.

The original Slave Bible was published in 1807 on behalf of the Society for the Conversion of Negro Slaves. Excluding any portion of the bible that might inspire liberation, it omits most of the Old Testament and around half of the New Testament. #blackhistorymonth #BHM2024
