Tuesday Tunesday: Songs for a Revolution

Tired feet marched on hard concrete. Colorful and condemning signs took up more space than bodies. Chants and passionate pleas for justice, freedom, and equality competed against honking cars and opposing views. These are the sounds of a revolution. It’s oftentimes unpleasant. It’s both time and energy consuming. It’s never easy, but most things that matter never are. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, we’re currently living in a time filled with trials and tension, and this moment is the start of a revolution. When we feel downtrodden, hopeless, tired, and eager to resign, which we will, let us not lose the hope and courage necessary to keep up the good fight. Take a listen to a few of my favorite revolutionary tunes (both old and new) that will encourage you to keep marching on!

“16 Shots” (Explicit) by Vic Mensa

“War” by Edwin Starr

“Freedom” by Beyoncé

“Killing in the Name” (Explicit) by Rage Against the Machine

“Ella’s Song” by Sweet Honey in the Rock
