The significance of being the first of anything is an achievement in itself. In all of the masterful references of who’s the first in the various sectors of American History, not one part of literature has given a true salute to those who opened gateways for our communities. Never has anyone decided to look at the scope of a generation of brave ones such as these. The ones who had no one to turn to, only their very own imaginations when the need for responsibility called. Although many of these brave pioneers are no longer with us to enjoy the salute to their challenges and successes, they do however remain a legacy in history. I hope that the memories given in the following pages will give them a place in our hearts and in our past, present, and future history.

I shall now begin this journey through the paths of their lives. I invite you to share the history as it is truthfully told for the first time. Together we will examine their charismatic personalities, and we will all see that this story is also ours.

A legend in itself is this journey. A journey of business, compassion, dedication, friendship; their journey—our leaders of broadcasting. I invite all to read and share this material of a rich history whose time has come. I invite you to share with the Disc Jockeys what it meant for you to hear their voices which echoed across our neighborhoods, and their music which became our mourning sun.

Imagine, if you will a little girl sitting comfortably on the floor while looking up at the radio speaker with her younger sister, only to hear the voice of her beloved Uncle speak  . . .

Thus begins her telling of: America’s 1st Black Disc Jockeys, a historical journey from the beginning.
