Back then, African-American slaves used to deel with a deep sorrow because of their hard lives and the back-breaking work they had to do on a daily basis.
African American Music
They sang the blues since the late 19th century to let off steem and not give up.
The blues was mainly about their deep melancholy and sadness.
Singing in the fields, churches or even at home helped them cope with horrible lifestyle.
During the 20th century, segregation and racial discrimination against black people was present in most public places such as schools, buses and restaurants.
African Americans couldn't sit in the front and had to leave their sit for a white person to have it.
Which means I shouldn't be here...
In the 60's, they demonstrated in the streets and mostly asked for equal rights.
In the 70's, black people from the Bronx weren't allowed into disco clubs but still wanted to have fun, and guess wha they did?
They created their own as an act of rebelion. It gave birth to Hip-Hop, a whole culture that evolved a lot and that includes RAP, DJing, grafiti and way more! But anyway, we're going to a concert now, guess the singer!
