Black History Month: Blind Boys of Alabama

WaveLink, Inc. is celebrating Black History Month with a special focus on recognizing the significant contributions of Black Alabamians.

The Blind Boys of Alabama began as six teenagers from the Alabama Institute for the Negro Deaf and Blind, performing for the first time in 1944. They’ve been “everywhere from Carnegie Hall and the White House to the Grammys and the Gospel Hall of Fame as they broke down racial barriers, soundtracked the Civil Rights movement, and helped redefine modern gospel music in the process.” As a 5-time Grammy Award winning group, they are now nominated for 3 more Grammys for their most recent work, “Echoes of the South”.
