Some Booker T and the MGs for some "Memphis Sound" of R&B. I guess they were among the first integrated bands, but I trust that's not seen as a negative for this and Booker T. Jones himself is black. (I guess he's still alive and younger than my Mom who listened to him in her early adulthood.)

"The Twist, superseding the Hula Hoop, burst upon the scene like a nuclear explosion, sending its fallout of rhythm into the Minds and Bodies of the people. The Fallout: the Hully Gully, the Mashed Potato, the Dog, the Smashed Banana, the Watusi, the Frug, the Swim. The Twist was a guided missile, launched from the ghetto into the very heart of suburbia. The Twist succeeded, as politics, religion and law could never do, in writing in the heart and soul what the Supreme Court could only write on the books. The Twist was a form of therapy for a convalescing nation..

Even though seriously lacking in rhythm as a poor white boy, Even I could dance to this one
