During the civil rights and Vietnam movement, music and media was a major part of the movement for change. Without people like James Brown, Marvin Gaye, John Lennon, Nina Simone, and Bob Dylan to name just a few…the momentum for making a change would have not happened as quickly.
This song and video by Ollie Gabriel expresses the experience and frustration of being a person of color in America. These centuries-old systems of oppression and systemic racism are kept in place because too many good people remain silent.
The time is here for us to really become a GREAT nation for all. It will take some painful reckoning of our open wounds, but it is the only way.
