Introduce your students to the rich history of African-American music. Trace the roots of African-American music back to the slave songs of the 1700s through hip-hop of the 1970s and 80s. Learn about musicians of each style and the influence this music has had on music of the world. Words alone will not do justice to the music, so audio examples are included. You will also find a discography, reproducible worksheets, extension activities, and a complete PowerPoint presentation.
