DETROIT (AP) — The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is marking Black Music Month with a concert featuring many of Detroit's prominent musical, visual and literary artists.

Singer Joan Belgrave, wife of late jazz trumpeting great Marcus Belgrave, is producing and performing at the June 27 concert, "Our Music Our Lives."

The show aims to explore connections between music and the American black experience, and will include works from slavery through modern times. The concert will span several genres, including R&B, jazz, gospel, blues and spoken word. Dance and graphic art also will be featured.
