"It has nothing to do with race"
Following the Civil War, black Americans, through employment as musicians playing European music in military bands, developed new musical styles such as ragtime and what would become known as jazz. In developing this latter musical form, African Americans contributed knowledge of the sophisticated polyrhythmic structure of the dance and folk music of peoples across western and sub-Saharan Africa. Together, these musical forms had a wide-ranging and profound influence over the development of music within the United States and around the world during the 20th century.

It’s getting to that point where I’ll be leaving soon for college (this coming Saturday, to be exact), and I’m frantically trying to see as many of my friends as I can before I go. In all this frantic planning, I’ve come to realize how little I’ve seen of my friends this summer, with some people I’ve seen only once or twice, and others none at all. It’s incredibly sad to think that, with everyone leaving for their respective college and opening the next chapter in their life, I won’t be able to see some of them off, with some being busy, or having just already left without me realizing. No happy cheers onto a new path, no tight hug and a choked “see you later”. They’re just gone, and I never cared to notice that they were no longer here until now. It weighs heavily on me, and quite frankly, I hate it.
