Rock Hall EDU Celebrates Black History Month with Release of New Collection

In addition to the series of virtual events being hosted by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in honor of Black History Month, the Museum’s digital education platform, Rock Hall EDU has launched a new collection focused on African American Music Industry Entrepreneurship.

Designed to help students learn about Black business owners who have shaped rock history, the collection includes:

  • a presentation about Jay-Z's music and business career
  • an interview with Motown record producer Lamont Dozier
  • essays about Black-owned labels like SAR and Stax
  • an article on girl groups from the ‘50s and ‘60s
  • and more!

Teachers and parents can create a free account at Rock Hall EDU (rockhall.com/education) to explore and download resources developed by our award- winning education team. Available assets range from professionally developed lesson plans, activities and downloadable activity sheets, presentations, videos, playlists, writing prompts, and more to engage students in the power of rock & roll as they learn about history, language arts, science, math and, of course, music. All materials meet national and state learning standards.
