Co-authors, father, and son discuss their latest book about the influence Black musicians have had in the industry - June 25th, 2021, By Michael Carson.
The Lawrenceville Boys and Girls Club welcomed this Best-Selling, Award-Winning Father and Son duo; Michael and Matthew Carson who are by now very well known for Michael’s other publications: "African-American Inventions That Changed The World" and "Today In African-American History."
Michael Carson and his 11-year-old son Matthew, agreed to work on a book while most families were looking for something to do while hunkering down during the COVID-19 epidemic.
After their family's vacation was postponed due to the epidemic, they decided to collaborate and publish "African-American Musicians That Changed Music Forever," a compilation of 100 incredible Black musicians who have been synonymous in the inception of several musical genres such as Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Soul Rock & Roll, R&B, Disco, and Hip Hop to name a few.
“I felt bad because he’s an only child and he doesn’t have any brothers or sisters so we decided to work on a project together,” the older Carson said. “It was a fun process. I learned a lot and we both kind of bounced ideas off of one another about these different iconic musicians, it was a ton of research and it was an overall enjoyable project.”
Each of Michael’s three books has gotten positive reviews on Facebook, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble, as well as being chosen for display at 13 African-American Museum gift shops in the United States and the United Kingdom. The Carsons have also had the privilege of meeting with Vice President Kamala Harris and numerous professional athletes to discuss their books, which include many amazing African-American inventors and pioneers who have changed the course of history.
