EDITORS’ NOTES

Every February, we take time to acknowledge the broad influence of Black Americans throughout history. The Black American experience is particularly dynamic in that its stories owe just as much to region and era as they do to familial heritage and personal circumstance. Since the very beginning, so much of this has been chronicled through music. The Black History Month playlist is a collection of these many vantage points and their vessels, from those dispensed over strings and horns to those unfurled over beats and scratches. Celebrate Black History Month with a journey through the sound of the Black experience.
