Coming up on Tuesday, January 17, 2017,

acclaimed singer Lizz Wright joins the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and more than 130 organizations committed to its Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) enterprise, for a National Day of Racial Healing.

Today, Wright releases a music video for the new single “Painted Sky” (Don`t Give Up On Us), a co-written song with Maia Sharp featuring Kenny Banks Sr. (piano) and Ted and Angela Jenifer (vocals), as the anthem for the National Day of Racial Healing.

The National Day of Racial Healing is a response to the broad call for racial healing following the recent contentious rhetoric, hate crimes and vivid expressions of racism.

Calls for healing have come from both President Obama and President-elect Trump, as well as 32 states.

Individuals, organizations and communities across the United States of America will participate in activities, events and actions to heal the wounds created by racial, ethnic and religious bias and build an equitable and just society so that all children can thrive.

Would you be interested in interviewing Lizz Wright about the National Day of Racial Healing and /or posting the video for “Painted Sky” (Don`t Give Up On Us)?

Join the National Day of Racial Healing on January 17, 2017 to help heal the wounds created by racial, ethnic and religious bias and build an equitable and just society together.

HOW can people participate in the National Day of Racial Healing ?

 My comment

Aprovecho la campana  por el Dia Nacional para la Cura del Racismo para presentar a varias de mis Cantantes Favoritas :  Dianne Reeves, Angelique Kidjo, Janet Jackson, Andra Day, Tamar Braxton y Lizz Wright, reconocidas por sus Conciertos SISTERS OF SOUL.

Y tambien al cantante y compositor RAUL MIDON,  a quien descubri  en un album del pianista cubano ROBERTO FONSECA interpretando EVERYBODY NEEDS A SECOND CHANCE.

OTRO COMENTARIO QUASI UN POEMA

TODOS somos victimas del Racismo Cotidiano,

no importa donde estes,  si en la Habana, Paris, Arizona o Vermont

Todos somos victimas del Racismo Cotidiano,

Lo aprendi en un filme Frances en el Festival de Cine que auspicia la Embajada Francesa en La Habana, con secuencias cortas acerca de Arabes y Africanos en Paris o en Marsella

Llevo 10 anos en Vermont, EUA y el abuso del Cuerpo Policiaco de la Union Americana es asqueroso

Cuantos NEGROS – Hombres y Mujeres, de cualquier edad  han muerto a manos de la Policia ?

Y a ellos que les importa ?

Vamos a ver que pasa ahora con el Nuevo Presidente electo DONALD TRUMP

Gracias a LIZZ WRIGHT and The Sisters of Soul, we are also calling all lovers.

“Such inspiring words in the song and in the description. Lizz you are light.

Beautiful song”.
