Black Music Month

The month of February isn't the only time on the calendar that celebrates the lives, progression and achievements of Blacks (read: Pan-African/African-American citizens), especially those living within the United States of America.

June, heralded as BLACK MUSIC MONTH, is a 30-day celebration and recognition of those men and women who either have, or are contributing to the worlds of music and music entertainment.

Helping to piece together the emergence of this cause, wikipedia.org, says "President Jimmy Carter, on June 7, 1979, decreed that June would be the month of black music. For the past 28 years, presidents have announced to Americans that we should celebrate Black Music Month... President Barack Obama has announced the observance, under the new title, African-American Music Appreciation Month."
