The First Annual Free Black History Mixtape- 2008 Edition


I created this mixtape with the blatant purpose of infusing some Black History back into our consciousness. With so much focus being placed on hip hop culture, I feel like a lot of Black History is being forgotten.

Hip Hop culture has evolved into being an assemblage of a lot of cultures joined as one. I think that this is great. However, in the midst of this coagulation, I don't think that Black History should be lost. Therefore, in celebration of the community from which I hail, I created the Annual Free Black History Mixtape. This is the first installment- the 2008 Edition.
