Supporting Black Lives Matter with Music

Reggae is more than just popular music, it’s message music. In the late ’60s/early 70s, lyrics became more conscious and words of protest and revolution changed the vibe and identity of the sound. Reggae had evolved into an important social and political phenomenon. It provided a voice for maligned groups, the unemployed, the oppressed and risk groups and provided a vehicle for social commentary and expression where no other outlet existed or was afforded. This mixtape of classic and modern reggae tunes, selected with the intention to give support to the Black Lives Matter movement, speaks for itself. Listen & Think!!!
