Have You Heard? On Father’s Day,  NMAAM took a moment to salute some of the musicians we like to call the Fathers of the Movement: The Godfather of Funk, George Clinton; the Father of the Blues, WC Handy; the Father of Gospel, Thomas A. Dorsey; one of the founding fathers of rock, Chuck Berry; and a founding father of R&B, Louis Jordan. We toasted to all the fathers, father figures, godfathers who’ve laid the foundation of Black music.
