This paper reviews of how and why America is indebted to African-Americans in many ways, whether it is because of statesmen like Frederick Douglass or brilliant scientists like Percy Julian, African Americans have given much to the United States and have not always been recompensed for doing so. This paper looks at one African American contribution (its music) and trace its origins back to West Africa. Along the way, the paper also notes how the abomination of slavery ironically blessed America with a musical tradition that has become an imperishable part of its cultural mosaic.
