Black music month. It all started with us. The world of music could never be parted from us.

Black music month. We were the earliest to give music a voice and now we all rejoice.

Black music month. We were there for the hymns and prayers and we’re still here a thousand years later.

Black music month. We created it all from the Blues to Hip Hop’s ones and two’s.

Black music month. The voices you hear when life takes a toll. These Black voices are the soul.

Black music month. You don’t have to like us and you can even doubt us, but music wouldn’t be music without us.

    Nice poem. I agree. Music would not be complete without the contributions of Black music. I thought Jazz was originally from Black music. Unless it has been categorized as Blues?
