WUMB February Program Guide

Black History Month on The Morning Show

During the month of February we’ll celebrate the contributions of African American musicians, writers, and artists on The Morning Show. Granted, this is something we make a point to do every day throughout the entire year. What is American music without syncopated ragtime piano, or classic, brassy blues; African American string bands, or urbanized, combo-based r&b of the wartime Great Migration? Who are we without electrified Chicago blues, socially-conscious soul, funk, or hip hop?

Our full story as a culture can’t be told without the help of Bessie, Aretha, Mahalia, Nina or Muddy, Ray, B.B., Stevie, and countless others. So we’ll do our best to tell it every day on The Morning Show for Black History month.
