Chuck Berry, born Charles Edward Anderson Berry on October 18th, 1926, in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S, was a singer, songwriter, musician, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. With songs including "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958), Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive. Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a musical style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.

At just 12 years old, Stevie Wonder was already a superstar child prodigy, performing his weaving melodies and harmonies for live audiences and on television. Blind since infancy, Wonder didn't let his disability define him, instead learning many musical instruments and developing his unique musical style. In his extensive music career, he has won 25 Grammy Awards and released more than 25 albums, featuring the easily recognizable songs "You Are the Sunshine of My Life" and "I Just Called to Say I Love You." Outside the recording studio, Wonder has championed causes around the planet, fighting against famine, abuse, and apartheid. In Stevie Wonder: Musician, read how this talented musician has inspired a new generation of musicians and serves as a voice of change for the world.

Like all double albums, Songs in the Key of Life is imperfect but audacious. If its titular concern - life - doesn't exactly allow for rigid focus, it's still a fiercely inspired collection of songs and one of the definitive soul records of the 1970s. Stevie Wonder was unable to control the springs of his creativity during that decade. Upon turning 21 in 1971, he freed himself from the Motown contract he'd been saddled with as a child performer, renegotiated the terms, and unleashed hundreds of songs to tape. Over the next five years, Wonder would amass countless recordings and release his five greatest albums - as prolific a golden period as there has ever been in contemporary music. But Songs in the Key of Life is different from the four albums that preceded it; it's an overstuffed, overjoyed, maddeningly ambitious encapsulation of all the progress Stevie Wonder had made in that short space of time. Zeth Lundy's book, in keeping with the album's themes, is structured as a life cycle. It's divided into the following sections: Birth; Innocence/Adolescence; Experience/Adulthood; Death; Rebirth. Within this framework, Zeth Lundy covers Stevie Wonder's excessive work habits and recording methodology, his reliance on synthesizers, the album's place in the gospel-inspired progression of 1970s R'n'B, and many other subjects.

Black Canadian Studies is the exploration of the range of histories, experiences, contributions, perceptions, feelings, convictions, triumphs, and obstacles awaiting to be overcome, of identified Black people of African descent resident in Canada. Black Canadian Studies revolves around the agency of Black people as the subject of investigation. Their stories, their interpretations, their pride, their independence, their self determination, their challenges, their triumphs, their shortfalls and sense of freedom and justice, are at the forefront of investigation. Multiple Lenses: Voices from the Diaspora Located in Canada is an essential introduction to an understanding of the experience of Black people in Canada over a four hundred year period. Through the lenses of history, law, literature, film, music, Black community organizations, media, sports, Black spirituality, party politics, labour markets, education and lived experience, renowned commentators explore through Canadian eyes, how Black people in Canada have identified themselves, and been identified over this period. What factors influenced that process? Black people in Canada are not part of "imagined communities" but real people with visceral connections, flesh and blood, striving to build lives under often unimaginable hardships. This book is dedicated to such Black people and their allies who, together, have fashioned meaning and hope in an often hostile environment.

Incorporating extensive interviews with black Americans who can shed light on Hendrix's complicated racial relationsips, this book explores, among other issues, how Hendirx exploded our complacently segregated world to emerge as an icon for white boys ; why we never hear his songs on black radio ; why black people once viewed him as a hippie Uncle Tom ; his connection to the Black Power movement ; how he electrified soul music and made the electric guitar supplant the human voice ; how he revolutionized the use of technology in popular music ; how he redefined rock fashion ; his sex appeal, especially with black women ; why nobody was mad at him for sleeping with white women ; and how he has subverted and destabilized black masculine stereotypes, changing the way we think not only about black music, but about black identity itself.
