    Did you know that Black Music Month has Philly origins? Philadelphia is the mecca of Black Music and it is no surprise that the legendary songwriter/producer and founder of Philadelphia International Records, Kenney Gamble, declared June as Black Music Month!  

     

    In 2000, the “Mother of Black Music Month,” radio personality and celebrity media coach, Dyana Williams along with former congressman Chaka Fattah worked tirelessly to get the African American Music Bill passed and official recognition of Black Music Month by the United States government! Enjoy this video of Dyana Williams telling the origins of Black Music Month:
