[VIDEO] Kids Get the Blues Too at Diamond Bar Library

In celebration of Black History Month, the Diamond Bar Library hosted blues artist Brother Yusef for a kids' concert.

The music called the Blues isn't always sad, Brother Yusef said, but was created at a time that was anything but happy for African-Americans.

Yusef, a Pasadena-based blues musician, and his audience were all smiles on Saturday, however, when he played for children and parents at the to kick off Black History Month.

"This music is what I like to call freedom music," Yusef said, "because it allows you the freedom to express yourself in ways you normally couldn't throughout society."

After the performance, Yusef left a copy of his children's CD Kids Get the Blues Too/Blues for Beginners at the Diamond Bar Library.
