Here is a collection of different black voices from the past. Some singing and some speaking with their hands. A little Blues, Jazz, Calypso, Zydeco and Rock & Roll. A few of these songs narrate what my ancestors experienced in the Jim Crow era. The Blues was a form of protest and I'm glad these recordings exist. I often wonder about the musicians who weren't recorded and what stories they had to share... Here are 14 songs I found moving. Some made me laugh, some made me cry and some made me dance. Enjoy!
