In 1979, Kenny Gamble, Ed Wright, and Dyana Williams implemented a month-long celebration of the impact of black music. These music business insiders pioneered Black Music Month and helped to create a continuous movement of empowerment and appreciation. On June 7, 1979, the inspirational group successfully lobbied President Jimmy Carter into hosting a reception to formally recognize the cultural and financial contributions of black music throughout history. Since that fateful year, Black Music Month has grown from an intimate commemoration to national reach with an abundance of events held annually across the country.

Last year, Council Member Andy King, the Council’s Black, Latino & Asian Caucus and members of the Power & Music Awards committee event honored Hip Hop artist Lil’ Kim, Fashion Icon Dapper Dan, the FUBU founders, Hip Hop artist Havoc from Mobb Deep, Music Industry Executive and RCA Urban Music President Mark Pitts, Fashion Designer Angela Simmons, and former NBA Player Charles Smith.
