Black History—Black music

This is African American/Black History Month. As part of our contribution here are a few songs that try to help us get a perspective of how black people feel about America and its struggles in this society. Paul Robeson was a singer from the first part of the 20th century. Here he sings a song about the famous IWW organizer Joe Hill. Living Colour was a well known black metal band, from the last few decades of the 20th Century that wrote about the state of the US in many of their subjects.  -សតិវ អតុ
