Sonya Eskridge is a writer from Maryland, who started her news career in radio at the age of 17. After graduating from Virginia Tech, she went on to write for a national publication where she was able to mold her personal voice. Always looking for ways to inform on important issues--or share her love of nerdy and girly things—Sonya thoroughly enjoys writing about a wide range of subjects.
Lauryn Hill is the latest artist to add her voice to the outcry over the injustice done in Ferguson, Missouri.
Whether expressing their anger on social media or taking the streets with protesters–or even pushing back a product release—celebrities have not held their tongue about how they feel over the fact that officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted in Michael Brown‘s shooting death.
Now, Lauryn has dropped a song titled “Black Rage” that she recorded in her living room. Set to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from the musical “The Sound Of Music,” Lauryn runs down the list of why it is that Black people are frustrated with the justice system–and the very notion that racism is no longer a thing.
One thing is for sure, you’ll never be able to hear “My Favorite Things” the same way ever again.
