White House Black History Month

SET YOUR TIVOS: The talent lineup for In Performance at the White House: A Celebration of Music From the Civil Rights Movement, which airs Thursday night on most PBS stations, is a diverse one. It includes Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Bernice Johnson Reagon With the Freedom Singers, all regulars at civil-rights rallies in the ’60s, as well as Smokey Robinson, Jennifer Hudson, John Mellencamp, Yolanda Adams (pictured), Natalie Cole, the Blind Boys of Alabama and the Howard University Choir. N.Y. Times senior music critic Jon Pareles was on hand for the event, part of Michelle Obama’s continuing music series at the White House, and you’ll find his impressions in this morning’s online edition.
