Music Moves is committed to educating and engaging the community by making high-quality performances of Black music accessible to everyone. Due to the pandemic, the organization is celebrating Black Music Month virtually. And while the celebration will be online in June, the organization is planning on future live programming and educational curriculum is already being developed with community organizations and artists.
Programming for Black Music Month opens June 5 with the spotlight on local Hip Hop/Rap artists during Freestyle Fridays, in partnership with radio station KISS 105.3. Saturday evenings will showcase a variety of R&B, Jazz, Blues, and Soul tributes in A Salute to the Legends, while Sunday Service will be presented twice each Sunday in June - once at noon and once at 6pm - featuring Gospel greats to start your week right. Performances will be broadcast on the Music Moves website and Facebook page, with Freestyle Fridays gaining additional play at KISS 105.3.
