“Say It Loud! Songs of Protest and Uprising” is a video donate-per-view concert project by the Corvid Ensemble which consists of songs, photography, and spoken word performance. We are responding to current events of racial injustice and police brutality in the United States using the power of music and art, and will explore some historical context around the songs. We hope that the video will encourage people to exercise their First Amendment rights through peaceable assemblies, petitioning the government, and speaking out against injustices. Each artist has submitted a video for the compilation.
