About The Event:
JUNE IS BLACK MUSIC MONTH —— CHARLOTTE, NC
HISTORY: 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 7th, 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.
EVENT: The #BeONE Music Experience celebrates black music and culture all month of June in Charlotte, NC. Live music, comedians and black culture all fused into one event! Hungry? You can bring over food from next door (The Brass Tap)! This event is rounded out with free massages and free raffle tickets. #BeONE with the music, #BeONE with self, and #BeONE with the culture!
