Everyone thinks they’re an expert of something until it’s time to be put to the test —especially when it comes to music. Besides Youtube, there aren’t a lot of outlets where you can go back and do your history on music that isn’t mainstream, bubble gum Pop. Which is why shows like TV One’s Unsung are a major asset to the African American music culture.

This month also happens to be Black Music Month, and what better way to honor the special occasion than to test your Black Music knowledge.  Black Music Month was created by musicians including songwriter Kenneth Gamble. President Jimmy Carter officially recognized June as Black Music Month in 1979.

Lemme say it again….

@oldmanebro: THERE IS NOT A MODERN MUSIC INDUSTRY WITHOUT BLACK PEOPLE AND BLACK MUSIC CREATED BY AFRICANS WHO WERE ENSLAVED IN AMERICA….Have a great weekend.
