Black Swan Records is an historic record label, having played a critical role in the history of recorded music. Founded in Harlem New York in 1921, Black Swan was the first Black owned record label that featured Black artists and recorded music that was geared towards a Black audience. As Black Swan began to have success, other larger labels such as Columbia and Paramount took notice, and began bringing in more and more Black artists. Unfortunately for Black Swan, once the larger labels recognized the significant market demand for Black artists, they became too much competition for the smaller label, and Black Swan was eventually sold to Paramount Records. The significance of Black Swan Records in the music industry can not be overstated.
