A Housley

On my page there are pictures of the actual albums of each song that is listed. Since I included a picture of the album, a synopsis, year released, and genre it narrows down research for the song and information about it (it’s easy to find). I also include the rating of each song on charts, as well as who produced two of the songs. All of the songs featured on my page aren’t just of the requirements, but songs that I like to listen to myself. My page consists of songs that relate to African American history and are interesting to me.
