During the 1960s, Black musicians and executives still had a difficult time breaking into the mainstream of the music industry. Despite the commercial success of Black music produced by the independent labels major record companies (with the exception of Decca) did not invest in it. However, a group of pioneering Black music industry executives, managers, disc jockeys, and promoters began opening new doors for African American artists. Logan H. Westbrooks was one of these pioneering executives, and his personal collection -- held by the Archives of African American Music and Culture at Indiana University Bloomington -- reflects the state of the music industry from the mid-1960s to the 1980s, which is often described as the Golden Age for Black popular music. This podcast features highlights from the collection which illuminate the role and achievements of Logan H. Westbrooks as a music industry executive and promoter of Black music for both major and independent labels.
