Movements often have a song that speaks to the spirit of the concerns of the protesters. As protests continue across the country following the decisions by the Ferguson grand jury to not indict former Officer Darren Wilson for killing Michael Brown and New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo was not indicted for the chokehold death of Eric Garner – perhaps now they have their song.
Wu-Tang Clan has released a video A Better Tomorrow which features snippets from Teddy Pendergrass’ Wake Up Everybody. As we watch the marches, it appears the youth and concerned citizens of all races are beginning to wake up. Let’s hope it lasts.
