As Black History comes to a close I look back on the journey that I was able to take with my students this past month. As 2011 rolled around, I was left with the dilemma of how to get my students at school more engaged in the musical aspect of February’s Black History. In my own research I was left with many genres, years of change and a plethora of artists and music which made my head spin. I posed it to the class, asking what they thought would be the most interesting journey for them while still thinking about learning as much about this history as possible.
