Art and Music

Music and Art are great levelers in humanity they transcend prejudice, not even racists can live without it. It would be fair to say that African slaves and their descendants have influenced the music we listen to in an extraordinary way, every time you switch on your radio almost all the that you listen to can be traced back to the slaves. However there are brilliant Black writers, painters, sculptors, poets, photographers and film-makers.
