about

Note from the producer:

This is a mixed compilation of music, poetry and stories meant to educate listeners about the severity of police brutality, murder and terrorism in communities all over the nation and to incite action against these injustices. Music and poetry by independent artists across the U.S. are intertwined with first-hand accounts from family of those killed by law enforcement, along with several Public Service Announcements and drops denoting some of the resources that have been created by the community for the community (www.october22.org & www.stolenlivesproject.org ). Composed of songs of several genres from all over the country that have been produced from 1996-2010, this mixtape conveys expressions of rage, sadness, frustration, resilience and wisdom.

This is a tool for empowerment. Please tell a friend about it and provide feedback: let us know which stories resonate with you the most, which songs are your favorites. Create events around this: use it as a teaching aid in classes, for workshops and to incite dialogue. Play tracks to people who have been directly affected in your community to sooth or uplift them.

It has been proven time and time again that the system will not look out for us, the people who are indiscriminately marginalized, criminalized, murdered and abused by the so-called authorities in these United States: that is something we must take the initiative to do ourselves. By purchasing this mix, you are supporting that movement.
