Jamila Woods – Blk Grl Soldier [Audio]


“I drew inspiration from a protest chant I learned at a Black Youth Project 100 meeting in Chicago. I love how music and chants were used in the Civil Rights movement to help people keep marching. How songs were both a balm and a call to action. I’m interested in figuring out what freedom songs would sound like in 2016. My hope is that ‘blk girl soldier’ is a freedom song for black women today who are fighting the macro and microagressions of daily life in our city/country/world.” – Jamila Woods
