What a heavy number of weeks it s been. The result it produces would most likely be exhaustion if you combine the pandemic with the murdering of Black people. At least that s what I m sensation. All of us cope with racism and injustice in a variety of methods none is much better or worse than the other. With the heaviness of cops violence and Black individuals dying of COVID-19 at tremendously high rates, I decided to focus all my energy into a bit of musical recovery (because, like Solange and the great James Baldwin, I ve got a lot to be mad about).
I curated an advanced soundtrack loaded with hits from Black artists about how dope we are, and how durable we always are in times of crisis. Delight in the music and keep in mind that this too, will pass. Make certain to tune into Amazon Music Unlimited for the full version. They re still doing 3 months of FREE listens. And if you want, contribute to the Minnesota liberty fund.
