Black History Month & Music: Part 8 of 12

*I APOLOGIZE THAT ALL OF THESE VIDEOS HAVE BEEN PULLED DOWN SINCE THIS WAS FIRST POSTED. IF I COME ACROSS A GOOD ALTERNATIVE TO VIEW THESE ONLINE, I WILL SHARE IT.

There is an amazing, four-part music documentary released in 2001 by PBS called “American Roots Music.” The coverage it contains is absolutely splendid. To further show the rich and vital music history of African-Americans, please budget in some time to watch the following clips.

Blues and Jazz

Minstrelsy

Race Records

Bukka White and Son House

Muddy Waters

Chicago Blues

Chess Records, Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry
