Today’s Top Visionaries of African American Music

African American MusicFor the past two centuries, few things have had more of an influence on the pop culture zeitgeist than African American art. The impact that people of color, specifically African American artists, have had on music can be seen in some of the industry’s biggest hits–from the blues-inspired songs of Elvis Presley to Madonna’s dance floor anthem Vogue.

 

With such a resounding legacy, it’s no surprise that in 1979 President Carter decreed June to be Black Music Month–later renamed African American Music Appreciation Month by President Obama. Forty years later, African American musicians continue to inspire audiences with their unique sounds and messages that define American culture.

Although June is a time for celebrating African American visionaries, the following artists and speakers use music as a medium for inspiring audiences and sparking creativity all year long.
