Correspondent John Morrison joins host Raina Douris

In celebration of Black History Month, World Cafe brings you “The Black Innovators of Rock & Roll”…Every week, all month long, John Morrison will dig into the music of Black artists who invented – and re-invented – rock, decade by decade. On the next Cafe, take a journey through the ‘70s and ‘80s, as John shines a spotlight on the psychedelic side of The Temptations and the Caribbean influence on Grace Jones. And hear how their musical experimentation still resonates today in a new generation of musicians.
