Hidden History: African-American musicians have made large contributions to New Orleans culture

 

(KRON) —¬†Black History month starts this week and on Monday night, KRON4 is beginning a series called “Hidden History” to take a look at the contributions of the African-American community.

When it comes to music, the roots run deep.

And when you talk about jazz, the blues and hip hop, one city which may be considered the center of those genres, is New Orleans.

Reporter Justin Campbell tells us those contributions can be traced back hundreds of years.
