Nina Simone is a good one too, important on straight black history grounds but she actually also has a song off of her live album, Nuff Said, that features a song performed the day after MLK died called 'Why? The King of Love Is dead'

Also if I was going to play a Stevie Wonder song for black history month, I would play the Black history month Stevie Wonder song, 'Black Man'

Also, and not to be captain obvious here, but the Billie Holiday song 'Strange Fruit' is literally about lynchings
