The year 2020 changed the course of humanity because of COVID-19. Life as we know it converted into a new normal, which included social distancing, face masks, and constant hand sanitizing. America was forced to shut down, and the economy froze, leaving millions of artists in financial peril. Parents scrambled to adjust their children to remote learning and faced enormous learning challenges. Americans were experiencing two divides in 2020, both racial and political.
The world witnessed George Floyd’s unconscionable death and Ahmaud Arbery running for his life during a morning jog. Rayshard Brooks being shot in the back with no remorse by law enforcement, and black mothers mourn their son’s lives across ‘Divided America.’
Music has always provided an outlet of hope and promise for people. During our lowest points in humanity, songs like ‘Express Yourself’ by NWA uplifted, educated, and empowered people of color to be fearless and speak truth to power. Hip-Hop music is a universal force of unity that speaks a language that invigorates youth culture and strikes fear into conventional America.
