Throwback: Black History Month: The Supremes

Today is the 21st day of Black History Month. I tend to use this time as a way to remind readers – and everyone else of a couple of important facts:

  • You can’t love Black artists and their work, and not see them as people 
  • Black lives — and Black art matters 
  • Black culture is American culture 

So as we go through the month, I’m going to talk about a collection of Black artists. It’ll be fairly comprehensive and eclectic list — although it won’t be a complete list. 

So far I’ve mentioned the following artists:

Tonight, I wanted to celebrate The Supremes, one of the biggest selling and most popular acts of their day — hell, of almost any day. During the 60s, they had 12 #1 singles on the Billboard Top 100.

Sure they were glamorous — and perhaps the most glamorous act of their day. But goodness, those voices!
