Is Popular Black Music Empowering Us? Debates Sets Scene For BBMM2010

A debate on black music timed for the mid-term break in order to get the youth and a broad inter-generational audience is set be the controversial event of BBMM2010

Everyone, from parents, faith leaders, social commentators, to youths, have an opinion as to where popular music is going and what effect it has on the community.

Nation Of Islam UK Assistant Min. Brother Polymin Muhammad, Strength In Numbers youth rep Dennis Gyamfi, Black Music Congress founder Kwaku, plus a guest artist will lead on this important debate before an inter-generational audience during the mid-term break.

The free event, which takes place in Stonebridge, north-west London, is part of British Black Music Month (BBMM), the annual space in June (now extending into July) for celebrating domestic black music, highlighting issues, and offering opportunities to learn about the music industry through courses and seminars.

The debate, which takes place at Bridge Park Complex in Stonebridge, north-west London, includes a panel of faith and community leaders, youth representatives, and a mystery guest artist.

BBMM, which is an initiative of the Black Music Congress (BMC), a forum for discussing black music issue, networking, and a pathway to music industry education, has been going since 2006.
