Black History

Strange Fruit - Billie Holiday

While one month is certainly not enough to celebrate and honor Black History, we can still take this month as an opportunity to do what we should be doing every month, namely give the proper respect and attention to the past, present, and future history of Black people in a country where Black histories (like Black people) have been deemed inferior. Much of contemporary spoken word is based in Black oral tradition and music, reaching through the blues, the Black Arts movement, and hip hop culture (to name only a few precursors).
