Cultural Appreciation Series: Black Culture and Music
March 26, 2019
7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Malcolm X Cultural Center
UMass Amherst Campus
From blues and jazz to rock and roll and on to hip hop, when it comes to understanding the power of black artists in the American musical landscape, there is certainly no shortage of icons from which to choose. In fact, it is impossible to discuss the history of American music without examining the origins and impact of black music. For consumers of music today, the overarching influence of black music is palpable in every chord and lyric.
MXCC will be hosting their Cultural Appreciation event featuring Black Culture and Music and invites you to come, learn and listen about the true pioneers of today’s music and engage in discussion and activities.
