Hands Up United Sharing Powerful Music

Hands Up United is curating and sharing powerful music on their site! 

An excerpt from their music page 

"Whether the Civil Rights Movement or the Hip-Hop Movement, music has always been used to inspire people to action. This section of the site will be dedicated to sharing the music of artists who are using their gift to motivate and mobilize."

"The first feature on our music page comes from Ferguson's very own Loki. Check out his new freestyle "Letter to Obama" which will be featured on his upcoming album Poems From Ferguson. The song was inspired by the pain the 16 year old frontliner felt after the non-indictment of Michael Brown's murder, Darren Wilson."
