songs for trayvon and mandiba

We’ve collected songs from past and present that evoke the painful history of the ‘killing of black mother’s sons’. These are not only moving but profoundly enlightening.

And we are on the air today on the 95th birthday of Nelson Mandela–and to honor him we play a sampling of the many songs speaking to him and about him over his 67 years of history making.
