73% of African Americans said they did not have emergency funds to cover three months of expenses. This is the NAACP warning repeated by Mr. Charles in the intro of the video for ‘Dedicate Black Lives Matter’.
The anthemical number with which Mr. Charles moves our consciences, vibrates and debates in a reflexive, mellifluous and crudely calm way. A protest message to wake up the minds, about a social theme in which economy, politics and social redemption are inevitably linked together.
By impressing in our ears the word “dedicated”, included with style and meaning in the song itself, ‘Dedicate Black Lives Matter’ rises, becoming at the same time an incisive edifying hymn, to fortify those who are suffering the difficulties highlighted by the protests that have been invigorated by recent news events that had worldwide resonance.
Equal opportunity, truth, peace, freedom and justice; they are all the precious values that ring inside, outside and around ‘Dedicate Black Lives Matter’.
Watch now the video of Mr. Charles’s ‘Dedicate Black Lives Matter’, available on the MRCHARLESENT Youtube channel.
