For the month of July, I chose to put together a playlist mainly focused on BIPOC artists, in the hopes that I can, either consciously or subconsciously, influence my listening habits going forward.
Some of these songs are recent discoveries from the last few months while others are from records that I didn’t pay enough attention to when they were released (which is the entire reason for my playlist project this year), but I do acknowledge how important it is to diversify my music tastes.
Now I am aware that just putting a playlist together doesn’t really do much, but I am going to make an effort to directly support each of this artists featured here (& others whose art I enjoy ) when I can in the future.
