~ Rage

As a 42 year-old Black Man in America, I can confidently say I would not have made it this far without Black Music.  There is a song for every mood I’ve ever felt.  Joy, love, happiness, sadness, anger, confusion and frustration.  For me, it’s the music that helps me endure the Maafa in a quest for freedom and justice.  It inspires me to become the best version of myself, so that I can help my family and community and do God’s will.  In celebration of Black Music Month, I complied this list of 25 songs that have inspired me since 1977.  I trust they have the same impact on you.
