In 1979 President Jimmy Carter decreed that June would be Black Music Month. Three decades later in 2009 President Barack Obama revamped the title and declared June African-American Music Appreciation Month.

Reach Out I’ll Be There – The Four Tops
Whenever I hear this song I think of the ending of the black cinema classic Cooley High. Run Preach, run!
