#BlackHistoryMonth - On Feb. 4, 1986, the U.S. Postal Service issued a commemorative postage stamp honoring abolitionist and women’s rights activist Sojourner Truth as part of its Black Heritage series. 

Sojurner Truth was born Isabella Baumfree in 1797 on the Hardenbergh plantation in upstate New York. In 1826, Truth managed to escape to freedom and became known as a fearless advocate for enslaved African-Americans and women.

She is best known for her “Ain’t I a Woman?” speech that challenged gender and racial inequalities. During the Civil War, Truth became involved in the war effort by recruiting black troops for the Union Army.

#JSUAlums - Everyone! Say Congrats to retired director of the Jackson State University Sonic Boom of the South Marching Band, Dowell Taylor.

Mr. Taylor has been selected to be the 2016 honoree for the nationally acclaimed Honda Battle of the Bands which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on January 28-30, 2016. Taylor has also been selected by the HBCU National Band Director's Consortium to be its honoree during its national convention in Atlanta Georgia on April 14- 17, 2016. These honors, bestowed on Taylor by the respective board of directors and his peers, are in recognition of a 31-year stellar career in the field of music as a music educator, music technologists, music performer and band director.

Taylor, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, is a graduate of Callaway High School. He also attended Jackson State University receiving the B.M.E. and M.M.E. degrees, respectively. Taylor participated in the JSU “Sonic Boom of the South” Marching Band Tuba Section, and during his undergraduate years he arranged more than 100 band selections including the current JSU theme song, “Get Ready”, originally arranged by John Paul Jones. In 1975 he received the highest award a bandsman could receive, the “Best All Around Bandsman” award. Taylor did further study (90 quarter hours) while enrolled in the Doctor of Musical Arts program in Wind Conducting at the University of Cincinnati, College Conservatory of Music, Cincinnati, Ohio.
