Jimi Hendrix’s Black Legacy Lives Through Literature
Author writes book on Jimi Hendrix’s Impact on Black Culture
Augusta, GA— 2/5/19 —Jimi Hendrix’s relationship with the Black Community has often been maligned, misunderstood, and misrepresented. Author Corey Washington wanted to develop a vehicle to address the complex relationship in its entirety. Jimi Hendrix – Black Legacy does that, and then some.
