About the Playlist

"Whether you're honoring the day alone or otherwise, here's some music for your Juneteenth. Juneteenth is not about music, but maybe some of these songs point to its value. Some of them are just perfectly written blues or love songs that when added together with each artists respective catalog, form, in my opinion, the bedrock for both the last century of music and the one we are all building now. #blm" - M.Ward
