Plea for Peace

Aug 29, 2014

I received this email from the band Afro-Semitic Experience, and watned to share their words and music with you all:

The Afro-Semitic Experience is saddened by the events in Ferguson, Missouri. We mourn the killing of Michael Brown and we are troubled by the violence that has been inflicted upon the community. We are reminded once again that the Civil Rights movement is far from over and that this nation is in need of an ongoing dialogue on race, bigotry and unity in the community. As musicians there is only so much we can do. But do it we shall. We are healers.

And so we share this link to a piece dedicated to healing. Healing in Ferguson. Healing in the United States of America. Healing wherever there is strife of any kind. Plea for Peace.
