Country Standard Time presents the Black Music Matters Festival, featuring Black Country and Americana artists from Aug. 2-6. Festival participants include Hubby Jenkins, formerly of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Rissi Palmer, Miko Marks, Barrence Whitfield, Ben Hunter, Aaron Vance, Daniel Houze and Kamara Thomas. Black artists - particularly females – have long been excluded from worthy coverage. Let their voices be heard. Festival attendees are asked to make donations to the Equal Justice Initiative, the Bryan Stevenson social justice group featured in the book and movie "Just Mercy".
