Continuing with our celebration of Black History Month, this is one of my all time favorite songs! Not only were there many positive or uplifting songs made back then, but we were also far more united (as a race of people) than we are today. I look forward to a time that we’ll revisit that spirited hope again. Dare I say, “Black is where it’s at”! The added bonus… it’s a clip from “Soul Train” too. I hope everyone will enjoy this weeks’ Mid-Week Jam, fellow people. We were are truly originators and trendsetting.
“Gangster rap”, “booty shaking R&B” music and other related themes in music is “played out” (LAME)!! We offer much more than that, folks! This song charted #8 in 1970 (by the Burke family). And this was at a time when this country was going through it’s severe racial divides that continues this very day. “Forgetting our past means loosing our future”– can anyone tell me who made THAT quote “famous”?
