In this class I learned that all of the music we listen to regardless of genre is influenced by African American culture. White people tried to change it to profit and become the face of it. I also realized that Black music signifies the struggles and triumphs that we have overcome as a people. Every genre is different and unique in its own way but they are also influenced by one another which makes them fluid. This class has heightened my ear for music, in that I am now aware of different rhythms and techniques used in songs.
