Mid-Week Inspiration

The amazing women of Sweet Honey in the Rock know a thing or two about struggle. Since the 70’s these women have been using their music, which is rooted in the traditions of African American vocal music, to “to inspire a multidimensional-intergenerational audience to find and use their individual and collective voice to address the critical issues of our time, and to celebrate our common humanity.” Phew, that is a pretty tall order.

And so needed in these times.

Their song Ella’s Song feels like both a soothing balm, and a powerful reminder to us all.

“Struggling myself don’t mean a whole lot, I’ve come to realize. Teaching others to stand up and fight is the only way my struggle survives. I’m a woman who speaks in a voice, and I must be heard.”

How do you stay inspired? We’d love to know, leave us a comment below! And, if you like this post, please like it and share it!
