CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH
Today Stax celebrates the start of Black History Month. From its very beginnings in 1957, Stax was known not only for incredible Southern soul recordings, but for the diversity of their amazing artists and staff who made musical magic happen. We’re proud of our role in preserving and honoring the rich history and accomplishments of the many Stax artists who’ve made an impact on African American arts and culture, not only in this country but worldwide – The Staple Singers, Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Albert King, Rufus Thomas, Carla Thomas, Johnnie Taylor, Eddie Floyd and so many others.
Join us in kicking off this special month with the Stax/Volt Black History Month playlist.
