Celebrities and Musicians do a great job of Speaking Up, using their platform to engage listeners and fans. Recent conscious raising albums like ‘A Seat at the Table’ by singer Solange and ‘Black America Again’ by rapper Common have been gaining traction, speaking out around Black Lives Matter, senseless violence, cultural appropriation and creative resilience. One of my faves, 'Chance the rapper' did something amazing this past election season, he led march of thousands to the polls to get out the vote, connecting everyday people with civic duty and speaking up for the needs of his city, Chicago.
