Hip Hop artist $tarbound who launches from Las Vegas, NV, will be featured in the "Woke Wednesday" block on September 5 with the inspirational video for his song "Black Excellence". The clip was initially inspired by the anthem protests led by NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The clip features elementary school students from Harvest Preparatory School in $tarbound's hometown of Minneapolis, MN. $tarbound has been motivating school kids with performances and online via the Verizon Innovative Learning program. The complete extended version "Black Excellence" can be viewed on YouTube here: http://bit.ly/
"Big Salute to BET Soul for recognizing music videos which challenge viewers to think and be inspired towards activism. This generation needs inspiration more than ever." - $tarbound
Last year, R&B Love King Raheem DeVaughn's conscious collective The CrossRhodes was featured on "Woke Wednesday". The duo consisting of DeVaughn and wordsmith Wes Felton had their politically charged video "America" programmed. The clip depicts the bleak landscape of contemporary urban America and poses the question "What is America?" The activist energy displayed by members of the #BlackLivesMatter movement is credited with inspiring the duo to record again after a ten plus year hiatus.
