Celebrating Black History Month

by Rhapsody  |  February 22, 2011

February is Black History Month, and Rhapsody would like to recognize and honor the immensely rich cultural contributions of African Americans musicians. From Louis Armstrong to Kanye West, African Americans have helped define popular music in this country. Click below for an overview of those accomplishments, great playlists and in-depth discussions on the political roots of Dance Pop in black music; the role of the "outsider" in African American music culture; and the influence of African Americans on Country music. We also have playlists highlighting the music of New Orleans as well as a selection of civil rights anthems.
