Created in 1979, Black Music Month celebrates the African American musical influences that are an essential part of our nation’s treasured cultural heritage. Each June, NBAF will host a tribute to a Black music icon, genre or movement and connect it and its history to the larger artistic and cultural movements that it inspires.
