1940 was the year that changed jazz.

Bebop gave the African American music scene some pizzazz

It also gave the Civil Rights Movement some push

To make the African American’s rights understood.


The Whites tried to imitate

But everyone knows that African Americans initiate


As time went on African Americans became known as Black

And we all know that Black don’t crack


In 1969 Summer of Soul was a celebration of Black Pride

Many popular Black Artist shared their music to make Black people unite

Black people embraced their African culture

Which made Black people see their lives for the first time in colour
