Make Noise!

For Black History Month 2020, NMAAM kicked off our first-ever Make Noise! campaign to highlight African American artists of the past who used music as a platform for social justice, and artists of the present who continue the tradition. Be sure to follow @thenmaam on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram as we celebrate these artists all month long with specially-curated daily content.
