Did you notice any divisiveness around the use of the hashtag #blacklivesmatter not too long ago? Perhaps that conversation is still going on.

This is the first time the album versions have been released to the public for listening and the advanced CD release party on Oct. 11th in Atlanta will be your first chance to get a physical copy of the full album (NOTE: online tickets are cheaper and selling daily, so be sure to get your tickets NOW at http://bit.ly/jstix ).
So, I completely understand people’s reactions like “All Lives Matter” when seeing the #blacklivesmatter hashtag – I used to respond the same way. However, I love what my friend Margaret Fuller commented when I first shared the spoken word text on Facebook:
“It took me a while to realize it, but by saying#blacklivesmatter, we ARE saying #alllivesmatter.”
You may be interested to know that I received inspiration for both of the tracks above shortly after watching this video:
If you like the tracks and video above, be sure to share them with others and pick up a copy of my first solo CD, “Limitless Love & Light,” when it comes out.
