Know Your Soul:
The Music of a Lifetime
Know Your Soul: The Music of Lifetime is very simply about culture overall and Black culture specifically that created R&B music from the 1960’s to 1990.
The Process, Afro, Jheri Curl and High Top Fade generations produced Classic Soul Music that did not just reflect, but shaped society.
This was a dynamic time in the history of Black America and many of you were part of the culture that resulted in the best music of the last century. R&B music was the voice box of the culture and during this 30 year period screamed "For Us, By Us” like no other time.
The tenderness of a heartfelt love song, thunder of a funky throw down jam, liberation of an unshamedly song of Blackness, the hypocrisy of war, feelings of inner city life, explosiveness of hip hop and watching the Soul Train Line become an American institution at all social gatherings are cultural insights explored
Understand how previously forbidden words like Funk, Freaky and Dope were “flipped” and became major descriptors in songs.

This book explains the dynamic nature of black music during three of the greatest decades of change in the country. It was done with knowledge, insightfulness, amd through the lens of someone who lived the music. The musical challenge at the end of each chapter was very thought provoking.

Know Your Soul: The Music of A Lifetime took me to a musical place that I had not visited in a long time. This
book was "sopped" in soul.
