Protest Music in Black and White | Segregated and Unequal
"If America’s original sin is indeed slavery, then her most insurmountable byproduct of
said sin is her inability to reckon with the resulting effects and long lasting trauma: the unconscionable treatment of the descendants of slaves in the annals of history through the following centuries leading to present day." ~ Alphonse McCullough
"The treatment of Black musical artists in the 20th Century, specifically the early to mid-1900s is a shameful part of that history. "Negro" or "Colored" musicians regularly faced segregation and violent environments wherever they performed. Those stories and their negative legacy have been treated largely as if they never happened. Researching these events required a deep dig into the horrifics of history." ~ Alphonse McCullough
In "Episode 2: Protest Music in Black & White, Part #1" we take a close look at this period, and the heinous acts committed against some of our most iconic figures recounted firsthand by those who witnessed and survived them.
