The American Negro

Tri-Gatefold, double disc LP, with Post Card "WARNING - NOT ACTUAL COVER ART. SOME MAY FIND THE ACTUAL ALBUM ART DISTURBING. CONSUMER DISCRETION ADVISED."

The American Negro is an unapologetic critique, detailing the systemic and malevolent psychology that afflicts people of color.  This project dissects the chemistry behind blind racism, using music as the medium to restore dignity and self-worth to my people.  It should be evident that any examination of black music is an examination of the relationship between black and white America.  This relationship has shaped the cultural evolution of the world and its negative roots run deep into our psyche.  Featuring various special guests performing over a deeply soulful, elaborate orchestration, The American Negro reinvents the black native tongue through this album and it’s attendant short film (TAN) and 4-part podcast (invisible Blackness). The American Negro - both as a collective experience and as individual expressions - is insightful, provocative and inspiring and should land at the center of our ongoing reckoning with race, racism and the writing of the next chapter of American history.
