This week’s Sunday Slow(ish) Jam although almost 40 years old still manages to speak to the political climate in our world, in North America, in Ferguson, in Baltimore…This song reminds me that we still need music to express the rage and frustration of living in a less than perfect time when inequality and racism are still thriving. We can change, we can sing, we can push back, protest and most definitely we can hang on.

“The sign said ‘America love it or leave’ well has it really come to that?
And beside, I don’t want to and you can’t make me love”
