Black-Music Memories From The Root

We go down black-music memory lane and give you a peek into our upcoming coverage.


June is Black Music Month, and The Root is celebrating with an analysis of some of the most memorable turning points in hip-hop, R&B, disco and go-go music. We take a look back 15, 25, 35 and 45 years ago to relive some of black music's most pivotal moments.

Watch The Root staff take a trip down memory lane and talk about their favorite artists and genres. We also give you a preview of the exclusive and exciting stories you can expect from us this month!
