World Cafe Playlist for 02/27/2023

John Morrison’s Culture Corner with host Raina Douris

Throughout February John Morrison is helping World Cafe celebrate the music of black artists with a weekly series looking back on the last 50 years of R&B. This week, John will wrap things up by talking about some of the artists who’ve made an impact in the 2000s – like Beyoncé – and how the reception of R&B among critics has changed since Y2K.
