Shadow Spotlight: Black Music Month

6. 18. 18 Hello all…hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, even though it was short…for some of us. I did say that this month’s Shadow Spotlight will be different. I just discovered that this month is Black Music Month or African-American Music Appreciation Month and I have some good music that needs to have a spotlight put on. Some of you may remember the music growing up and those who are just discovering it for the first time. I’ve created a small video playlist of past, present, and future…                         You can find the rest of the playlist on Spotify, yep Shadowboxerinc has a Spotify account. Already have a playlist titled June is Black Music M0nth. Enjoy the rest of your Monday, be blessed!     Image source: wellwallpapers.com
