Toward that goal, TIDAL is offering a series of expertly curated audio & video playlists featuring stand out music, videos, and more from artistic members of these communities.
TIDAL programming for Black Music Month includes:
You can find all of TIDAL’s Black Music Month playlists here.
In addition to Black Music Month content, TIDAL is hosting a hub spotlighting today’s release of “Fires in Little Africa,” a powerful collaborative album from a collective of local rappers, activists, songwriters, and educators in and around Tulsa commemorating the traumatic legacy of the city’s 1921 race massacre, in which a white mob descended on the streets of Greenwood — then a prosperous zone known locally as Black Wall Street — and killed somewhere between 30 and 300 people, burned down the business district, destroyed roughly 1,500 homes, and left thousands of black Tulsans homeless. You can listen to the album and podcasts here.
Throughout June, TIDAL is releasing special programming spotlighting pioneers, rising artists and today’s chart-topping Black artists. By celebrating how integral all voices are to the industry, TIDAL continues its commitment to providing its members with culture-shifting content that showcases the diversity of music.
