Celebrated in the U.S. and Canada during the month of February, African American History Month has morphed from an observance solely for remembering historical figures and events associated with slavery and it's eventual demise to a month honoring all ground-breaking African Americans.

In the music world, that's a tough conversation to have without mentioning the King and Queen of Soul; namely, Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin.

To celebrate their immense contribution to rock and roll and soul music, the Source is giving away a four-disc anthology of each artist's music.

In order to win, all you've got to do is either comment below or on the FACEBOOK post about this giveaway, or reply to us on Twitter (@sourceweekly) and tell us who you think ought to be recognized for their contributions during African American History Month.

We'll pick a winner by the end of the week.
