Jazz has always had a special place in African American History. Faced with racism, discrimination, and segregation, especially throughout the Civil Rights Movement, African Americans found comfort and a sense of peace in their music. Having mentored and promoted musicians for decades amid racial injustices of the times, we salute you Ed Love for your historical contributions, over the past 60 years, both to the industry and society at large. Your award-winning style on the Ed Love show will be sincerely missed.
On behalf of the staff and volunteers at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Congratulations on such a meaningful career and Thank You!
