Right now, our country is experiencing a time of great passion and change. Many people across the country — and the world — are joining together to give momentum to the Black Lives Matter movement and to protest police brutality and other forms of systemic racism.
In times like these, music can be a powerful influencer along with petitions, donations and education about racism and how to be an active ally in our society. While so many work for change, these songs can be a reminder of the long-awaited equality and justice the movement strives for.
