[Playlist] Woke Wednesday Vol. 1: The Black History Month Edition
This playlist features music by American musicians concerning the celebration of black resilience, black tolerance, black excellence, black pride, black unity, and a return to roots in the face of oppression.
Be clear African history doesn’t not begin with slave ships, African American history does.
I made this playlist out of love for my brothers & sisters, and love for the plethora of hip hop artists that have influenced modern day American culture through struggle & prosperity, what I consider true Americanism to be about.
In my opinion, the struggle is long from over physically, emotionally, spiritually, & mentally, but I think it’s okay to celebrate the progress we’ve made this far in the name of the progression we strive for.
PS. Here’s a little black history for ya ass, the term “woke” was first used by an artist on a song included in this playlist. 🌚
