From the Vault: Funk and R&B Inductees

During African-American Music Appreciation Month, we honor gifted African-American artists and their music, which in the words of former President Barack Obama, has compelled us “to stand up -- to dance, to express our faith through song, to march against injustice, and to defend our country's enduring promise of freedom and opportunity for all.”

This week we're diving deep into our collection featuring Inductees whose contributions to Funk and R&B forever impacted rock & roll. From 1986 Inductee James Brown to 2013 Inductee Quincy Jones, we're spotlighting Hall of Fame artists including Ike & Tina Turner, Sly & The Family Stone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Parliament-Funkadelic, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind and Fire and Donna Summer. Get your groove on for the whole week.

We've got your first-row ticket to witness the iconic moments.

While the museum is temporarily closed we'll be featuring special Inductee and educational content. Check out each week's release for the next content series or visit Rock Hall EDU, our free online learning resources that provide at-home activities for music fans of all ages.
