Students Celebrate Black History Month through Music

Music and entertainment is ingrained in the culture of Nashville. Students at Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School eat, sleep, live, and breath the music industry. In honor of Black History Month, students at Relentless Entertainment (the Pearl-Cohn record label) took on the challenge to discover how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. impacted the music industry.

The students brought together an in-depth lesson about Dr. King's work in Birmingham, Alabama, their Academy theme and work at the record lable, and a classic hit from Marvin Gaye to create a fascinating project.
