ASCAP Celebrates Black History Month

February 1, 2021

Black music creators have defined and transformed our culture since the very beginnings of the music industry. Every day of Black History Month, we’ll highlight the achievements of Black ASCAP members that have made a significant contribution to music history, ASCAP’s history or Black history more broadly. We’ll close out the month with a spotlight on our members who are shaping history right now.


Visit this page each Monday in February for a new group of Black music icons we represent, centered around a different theme each week. Follow @ascap and @ascapurban on Instagram and Twitter to see the full campaign unfold day by day.
