In Honor of Black History Month: Songs, Part I


I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water. ~ Ray Charles

Sam Cooke: A Change Is Gonna Come



Paul Robeson: The House I Live In







Robert Johnson: Crossroad


Billy Holiday: Strange Fruit


Odetta: No More Auction Block for Me




This is a beginning. I shall have other posts in February of music to celebrate African-American History Month.
