postheadericon BluesNews from the World Of BluesBlues: July 16-17, 2016


chuck berryThat’s the music of the late great Johnnie Johnson, long time keyboard player for the famous Chuck Berry. American Blues Scene Magazine has reported that Johnnie Johnson will Receive the Congressional Gold Medal. This is one of the highest civilian honors in the United States, going to people whose achievements had an impact on American History and Culture. But, the medal is presented not for playing the Blues, but his military history. He enlisted in the Marines during World War II when the Marines were still segregated. From 1942 to 1949, more than 24, 000 African American men received Marine Corp training Camp Montford Point, a part of Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, and endured racism and all kinds of hatred, but they inspired social change while intergrating the all white Marine Corp. His widow, Frances Johnson will receive the medal at a ceremony later this year. The reason the Marines stopped this special program for admitting African American Marines was because of Executive Order, 9081, President Harry S. Truman Executive Order which desegregated the U.S. Armed Forces… Congratulations to the family of Johnnie Johnson….We have a link to the article that’s on the American BluesScene site on the BluesNews Page at
