In celebration of Black Music Month we decided to highlight a few songs that have made an impact on Black culture throughout history.

From James Brown’s 1968 classic, “I’m Black and I’m Proud” and Queen Latifah’s tribute to sisters, to Kanye West praising Jesus, each song’s message has gone on to resonate with legions of listeners.
