Many African Americans used their talents to show their identity, feelings, and much more. Through different genres it can show the trauma from black oppression. Music has shown to evolve because of blacks. We have created Negro Spirituals, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, R&B, and much more. Not until a couple of decades ago blacks weren’t being shunned by whites in the music field. Whites didn’t like black artist or their music until one day they would copy their music and style.
