MOOD OF THE PEOPLE

SPEAK YOUR TRUTH


Jack by Rosca

YouTube Video - Description: Tribute to Jack Merritt


One year on from the terrorist attack that resulted in two tragic deaths on London Bridge (29.11.19), one of Jack Merritt’s closest friends, an amateur singer-songwriter, whom he met through Cambridge University’s ‘Learning Together’ programme, Rosca Onya, is launching ‘Jack’, a memorial rap single in Jack’s memory. Rosca is hoping to raise £5,000 before the end of the year for non-profit organisations Learning Together, Just for Kids Law (JfKL) and JENGbA (Joint Enterprise Not Guilty by Association), from sales of his poignant and heartfelt single.


Remembering Jack, Rosca expressed from the heart:

“I met Jack when I was in HM Prison Grendon, an amazing therapeutic prison that helped me to view life in a different way. When I came to the UK, I was nine; I had experienced so much terror in my short lifetime and had no emotional or life parachute. I didn’t have people around me I could trust. I ended up in prison because I got involved with a local gang – they made me feel like I belonged by night while I was being bullied at school by day. Whilst I deeply regret and now take ownership of my actions, I never would have met Jack otherwise. Jack wasn’t like most people I had known before – he didn’t see black or white, as I wrote in the lyrics of the song. We were both passionate about music and he helped me pass a Criminology course at Cambridge University”

2Pac - Holler If Ya Hear Me 2020 (Music Video) (HD) (Tupac Shakur) Full Version

Published Date: 5 June 2020



YouTube Video - Description:

2Pac - Holler If Ya Hear Me 2020 (Music Video) (HD) (Tupac Shakur) Full Version Directed By Itsthemcp SAC This video shows not much has changed since 1993 when 2pac released this song. This is an updated version of the music video "Holler if ya hear me" from Tupac Shakur. The majority of this music video has clips of protest from people outraged over the passing of George Floyd. We were still dealing with the anger about what happened to Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor and then BOOM George Floyd. If Tupac was still alive he would be out there fighting with everyone else, in fact he would be leading them. Since he cant be here I have decided to bring him back. #georgefloyd #icantbreathe #blacklivesmatter #2pac #tupac #hiphop

Youssou N'Dour - 7 Seconds ft. Neneh Cherry

YouTube Published Date: 25 Oct 2009


Story of the Song: 7 Seconds, Youssou N'Dour and Neneh Cherry, 1994


Neneh:

"I was very familiar with his music 'cause I heard it in my house when growing up," Cherry recalled. When her parents organised a festival in Sweden, N'Dour was invited over. "It was like a little barn happening," said Cherry. N'Dour recalled that the teenager helped prepare him dinner.


N'Dour's Western breakthrough in 1986, courtesy of Peter Gabriel's Real World stable, prompted Cherry to initiate a collaboration. Cherry suggested co-writing an anti-racist song. With partner, Cameron McVey, and producer Jonny Dollar, Cherry and N'Dour wrote "7 Seconds", the title referring to the first moments of a child's life, as Cherry put it, "not knowing about the problems and violence in our world".

Message:


Listen to a song that Bob Dylan wrote in the 1970's:Hurricane.

Maybe you don't like Bob Dylan, but give it a go and listen to the words. 

"Rubin could have been the champion of the world " if your black you you might not as well show up on the streets. The song refers to Rubin Carter a Black American boxer,framed,falsely imprisoned by the racist system in the early 1960's. Nothing has changed. We are all United in this fight against Racism.

"Hurricane" Carter (1991) - the fifth estate

Published Date: 30th March 2015



YouTube Video - Description: From 1991, our profile of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter. The young African American boxer was on his way to a world title fight. But before that he became involved in a miscarriage of justice. In 1966, in Patterson, New Jersey he became a victim of racism and framed for murder. Carter might have spent his entire life in prison, except for an idealistic band of Canadians who decided to take up his cause. Hana Gartner profiles Carter and chronicles the struggle to clear his name.
