“Here we go…here, here we go again…Travyon a never get to a older man…black children, their childhood stole from them, robbed of names & our language…stole again…”
Common has released the official visual for his single, Black America Again featuring Stevie Wonder. It is a powerful track about the struggles going on in the Black community. The visuals are as powerful as the words. He begins by showing the senseless murder of Alton Sterling before showing the tears & distress of the Black people who survive & are terrified & devastated. It’s a look into the emotions behind Black Lives Matter & the frustrations we feel as our people continue to be murdered without any hope for justice. It puts music to what has been talked about with the recent police killings that have hit the news. Common goes through our history & highlights how we as a people have been suffering for centuries. I’m sure he’ll be performing this this weekend at Aahh Fest. Stevie sings, “We are re-writing the Black American story…we are re-writing the Black American story…”.
