In the YouTube Music app, YouTube has created a series of playlists centered on expressions of the Black experience. This week YouTube started with a 50 song, 3-hour playlist, “Lifting Voices…Strong,” an upbeat collection of tunes honoring strong Black voices throughout history. Powerful artists, including Kendrick Lamar, Common, Rapsody, and Queen Latifah, set the tone for a fulfilling Black History Month. Throughout February, Youtube will release a new themed playlist each week, which will all be found on the Celebrating Black History Shelf on the Home page of the YouTube Music app.
