History Fun Day Monday!

Hi! Happy History Fun Day Monday!

I’d like you to meet George Washington Jones (1846-1914) who was the first African-American recording artist and considered one of the early pioneers of the record industry, singing jazz and blues. Below is his song, recorded in 1891. (Excuse the name of the song. Again, this was 1891).

George Washington Jones, (1846-1914), reputed to be the first African American recording artist during the 1890s and early 1900s.
