Black music has long dominated the charts in North America, but there has never been a proper home for it - all of it - at a Canadian Broadcaster. Black music pushes language, smashes creative boundaries and unites us. Black music is everywhere. Black music is everything. THE BLOCK is a CBC radio show for music of Black origin. The brand represents the people and music. Inspired by aerial city grids the show is and intersection of Black music, culture and art and encompasses innovation, community, a sense of belonging, history, celebration and familiarity.
