Morehead State Public Radio has been airing specials throughout February to celebrate Black History Month. This special features the following. Despite disability, poverty, isolation and prejudice, a surprising number of blind African American musicians who came from the gospel tradition influenced not just gospel music, but blues, bluegrass and American vernacular music up to and beyond rock and roll. This special uses narrative, archival audio, interviews, scholarly commentary and music.
