BLACK HISTORY MONTH: FREEDOM NOW, AND OTHER JAMS

The upcoming HITS Black History Month special will focus on the music sometimes but not exclusively known as jazz—and the history of its interaction with the struggle for social and political change. This will not be a textbook of "important names" or an exhaustive catalog of key recordings so much as a kind of mixtape. It will note certain resonant themes and show how the music danced with the pressing issues of the last century or so. We're extremely excited to share it with you. Stay tuned.
