Understanding Black History Through Black Music Black music has often served as a barometer of the times and lives of black people. This program, utilizing recorded music, explores various aspects and periods of black history by examining the music of each era. It ranges from the worksongs and spirituals of slavery through the rap of modern urban times.

This program is made possible in part by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
