Music is the Message, Pt.2

Racism in music has been a recurring theme ever since the blues was born. Found as a means for expression for their anguish and strife, musicians took to their craft to pen powerful ballads about the real devastation experienced because of racism in 20th century America. By the late 1960s, music was changing right along with the political landscape.
