Whether from fine arts museums or foot-stomping juke joints, artists have long played a key role in the movement for social justice. Critically acclaimed musician and activist Rev. Sekou believes that artists will play an essential role in healing the acrimony that besets much of our national dialogue. Rev. Sekou’s own music builds upon movement music by the SNCC Freedom Singers, the Staple Singers, and the blues tradition. By accessing the work of cultural geniuses such as Albert Camus, James Baldwin, Audre Lorde, and Rosetta Tharpe, Rev. Sekou unearths the ways in which artists have historically provided a balm for wounded social justice warriors.
