In honor of black talent throughout history, Epidemic Sound is celebrating Black History Month throughout February. And we thought, what better way to kick-off this event than by highlighting some exceptional black music, in a specially curated album.
Black History Month is an annual celebration and remembrance of black excellence throughout history. The observance originates in the US, where it’s also known as African-American History Month, and has been celebrated since 1976.
Ever since, people worldwide, and especially in the US, have used the month of February to take a critical look at how African Americans have influenced history, politics, culture, and in particular: music.
The 2021 theme for the month is 'Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity,’ and to celebrate these values, we’ve curated an album showcasing some of our amazing black music creators.
