"Black as Folk" is a monthly program celebrating Black folk music from amazing Black folk artists. Black Folk music was a solace, a community-builder, and a voice for hope during enslavement and afterward, in the days of Reconstruction and then Jim Crow. The genre still is alive and well and KBOO is proud to showcase music that is powerful, moving, and BLACK AS FOLK!!!
