African-American music to highlight June concert series


A celebration of African-American Music Appreciation Month occurs every Friday night in June at the Bo Diddley Community Plaza as part of the “Free Fridays” concert series.

Inspired by the dream of late local musicians Richard Baxter and Roland Burns, African-American Music Appreciation Month has been celebrated in Gainesville since 1998.
