Things You Never Knew About Black

Black Friday is coming! With all the hype, I thought it would be fun to learn more about the color black and its uses. Black is associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil and mystery.

Did you know that Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, Nina Simone, Pearl Jam, Leadbelly, Lynard Skynyrd, Amy Winehouse, The Beatles, The Goo Goo Dolls, Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Peter Gabriel, Michael Jackson, AC/DC, Bob Dylan and Carlos Santana are just a few of the musical artists that have recorded songs covering everything from social unrest to lost love with black in the title?
