Huron Heights celebrates Black History Month honouring musicians of colour and their works, as chosen by HHSS staff members! Each day in the month of February we will post a new song title & recording artist of colour, along with the name of the HHSS staff member that offered the suggestion.

We encourage you to search for the posted song & artist of the day in your favourite music streaming app (all titles and artists have been verified to be available via Spotify for free) and check out the wide range of music genres and eras that are represented.
