KINGS & QUEENS: Message Music From The Movement
Grammy Award winning gospel group the Sounds of Blackness has released a new CD, KINGS & QUEENS: Message Music From The Movement, which brings the spirit of “The Movement,” and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to address today’s issues of street violence and domestic violence.
The Sounds of Blackness are partnering with the NAACP and with IDVAAC –The Institute on Domestic Violence in the African-American Community, to help end self-denigration, domestic violence against women and to resurrect self-respect.
Their intent is to launch a national and international music-based campaign designed to fully educate ALL people – especially youth, about who we as African Americans really are. The group states, "The images that we see in too many videos, hear in too many songs, and that we constantly see on the nightly news, have contributed to a negative image crisis which Sounds of Blackness is addressing NOW - because it continually fuels the flames of self-denigration, violence and death."
The Sounds of Blackness and Best Buy will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Project Foundation.
The CD is now on sale exclusively at Best Buy.
