Community Voices: Lenny Santiago Examines the Evolution of Black Music in America
As a part of our commitment and responsibilities as an ally, we intend to highlight and amplify black voices within our community. Each week, we’ll be introducing you to a new guest who will be diving into important topics about the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We hope that you will find this series educational and empowering. This week we linked with Lenny Santiago to discuss the evolution of Black music in America:
– Discuss the evolution of Black Music in America. (Starting during slavery and evolving into music genres that people love today.)
-How would you describe Black Music’s effect on culture today?
-Why do you think that Black Music resonates with so many people?
-What do you want people to take away from Black Music and the artists who create it?
Thank you for joining us today. Make sure you keep an eye out for our second installment of Community Voices.
