‘Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing’ (The Undefeated Mix) featuring Aloe Blacc and special guests The String Queens
It’s called the Black National Anthem. First penned as a poem in 1900, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” is the melodic cornerstone of the African-American experience, a quiet but steadfast declaration of the pain and resilience of our ancestors.
In a moment in time when the very word “anthem” stirs debate and controversy, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” is singular and unmistakable in its message of hope. Filmed on the grounds of Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s primary plantation, Aloe Blacc’s modern-day rendition speaks to the struggle today in the new civil rights era, with a brilliant reimagining of what the present offers and the future holds.
