American singer-songwriter Elijah Blake releases the riveting visual to his single “Hanging Tree” off Harry Belafonte’s Sankofa EP 17 project. Music should feed, nourish and awaken the soul. A record as powerful and controversial as this one stands on the backs of years of prior and current oppression. Have the times really changed? Are we truly free? This visual displays physical and metaphorical modern day bruises, but we shall overcome as we always have, check out Blake’s latest visual below!
Elijah Blake sings:
He looks just like me, so tell me am I really free
Coulda been my mother crying for my brother…
and everybody everybody everybody’s praying for peace
But who’s gonna protect us from the police
