Beginning February 1, the campaign will highlight pivotal figures and works in Black music culture daily at 3PM ET/12PM PT on Instagram at @ASCAP and @ASCAPUrban.

Daily posts will include fun facts, photos and reels that commemorate the impact of Black artists, songwriters and composers spanning decades and musical genres, including Stevie Wonder, Nat King Cole, Mary J. Blige, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Whitney Houston, The Notorious B.I.G., Charley Pride, Louis Armstrong and more.

The campaign will kick off with a video introduction from up-and-coming songwriter/artist/producer/actor Tia P. and historian/singer/songwriter/producer TL Cross, and continue with weekly videos from one of the hosts. Viewers can tune in, test their knowledge and learn more about how ASCAP members have helped shape Black music history.

Additionally, ASCAP will present an Instagram Live conversation with A-list trumpeter Keyon Harrold, discussing his work, collaborations with artists such as JAY-Z, 50 Cent and Maxwell, and reflecting on meaningful moments in Black History.
