No Black Teenagers

African-American-Teenagers

I went to school for media and communication arts. It was there that I learned about media analysis. I also become aware of a lack of black images across the media. By this I mean a truthful representation of what it means to be a black person, or someone of the African Diaspora, in these modern times. This special iMix was inspired by this problem, this obstacle that we must overcome! Why? because some little boy or little girl is sitting in front of the tv, or computer, or MobDev(mobile device) trying to make sense of the world and their place in it! This iMix showcases great black music of the past, present, and the future.
