Why should you be an Amnesty Member? Our Executive Director Irũngũ Houghton, is here to break it down for you. This was recorded as our first episode, but we had to hold on to it for our #AmnestyIsYou Campaign!
What are we Jamming to this week? We’re glad you asked!
This week we are jamming to one of our fave artists, India Arie!
This jam completely hits the spot. In the song, India asks, "What if Martin didn't stand up?
What if Rosa didn’t sit down?
What if Malcolm didn't man up?
Where would we be now?
What if Marley didn't get up, stand up?
What if Du Bois didn’t come to advance us?
And Mandela didn't come to teach us?
Where would we be now?"
It’s a song with poignant lyrics that not only spurs thought but spurs us to action as well. Check it out on youtube if you haven’t. You will love it!
Real quick, before you go. You can join Amnesty as a member here!
You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
