Ode To Oather

The world has lost one of its great social soldiers. A man who lived a Christian life by definition. A loving husband, father, sibling and friend. After 95 years the earth says goodbye to the late, great Oather M Jones.

What’s Wrong With Just Being Black

Murder victim Tywanza Sanders was not only an innocent victim of racial terrorism committed by a despicable white racist, he was also an aspiring rapper.

Together with Producer/DJ Sir Charlie London and singer songwriter Kamary Phillips, one of Tywanza's (aka Fresh Wanza) last known songs has been realized.

In the song he poses the simple question, "What's wrong with just being black?" and one gets a sense of his personal frustration particularly a reference to taking a test where someone is required to state their race. His attitude appeared to be something like, "Fuck it! Just put white." It's hard to know exactly what Fresh Wanza was thinking or feeling beyond the words but we hope this effort helps keep his spirit and story alive.

You can download the song free.
