black history month

Black History is comprised of African American creativity, passion, ingenuity, and constant progression, in the face of adversity.

Full of obstacles and hurdles, the black plight is not defined by the hand that it has been dealt, but by the ability to overcome.  

This Black History Month, WBLS is spotlighting historical figures who have transcend the medical, technological, and automotive fields. We are also highlighting artists and songs, that not only entertained us, they were the voice of our issues and inspired us to act. This is WBLS I AM Black History Month and The Soundtrack to Social Change.
