The Essential Black History Month Songs

Well, February and Black History Month (BHM) may be over, but I would still like to share with everyone my essential BHM songs that have a message in the music and seem appropriate for the month. The reason I say essential and not definitive is because for me making this list is still a work in progress but as of right now this is what I have compiled to the best of my ability.

I will share two list this time actually. The first being the essential list. The second just being my charts / tracklist from the songs I played at the official Black History Month Tokyo 2014 party on February 23. Hope these will be educational to someone out there with a mind for learning and those just seeking a good song to listen to.
