Black Music Month

It may seem like every day is the time to celebrate the musical contributions of African-Americans, thanks in no small part to the never ending amount of innovative, exciting music that is recorded and released. But, actually, since then-President Jimmy Carter announced it on June 7, 1979, June has been the month designated as the time to formally honor it. This year, BET's coverage includes an uncut video interview with Jermaine Dupri, a flipbook of 25 music executives you need to know and a photo slideshow of our favorite music moments in film and lots more.
