Norman Kelly joins Public Enemy's Chuck D and others to dissect the history of black music. R&B examines how black music - from today's hip hop all the way back to soul and blues - has been developed, marketed, and distributed within the structure of capitalism. Public Enemy's Chuck D, author Norman Kelly, and other journalists and musicians combine forces to dissect contemporary trends in the music industry, and explore how blacks have historically interacted with the business as artists, business-people and as consumers.
