African American Music Month is the annual celebration of African Americans’ musical contributions to the soundtrack of American life. Every June, in the USA, Americans are reminded of the important contribution African Americans make to American music, and to music around the world. In the UK we have close ties with American culture, so at Bradon Forest we will be celebrating too!

Staff and students have been invited to submit their contribution to a special playlist. What is your favourite song by an African American singer, band, songwriter, musician? There are so many genres to could choose from – pop, soul, r&b, jazz, gospel, hip hop, musicals…. Suggestions should be sent to The music will be played around school for the last two weeks of June. Music is best when shared!
