New York, New York – Gravitas Ventures and Mustapha Khan Films are proud to announce the upcoming release of Song For Our People. The new music documentary will be available on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube and other video-on-demand platforms from February 9.
Song For Our People follows an extraordinary group of activist musicians and artists who come together to create a powerful new anthem to honor their ancestors and celebrate Black lives. The inspiration comes from the film’s Emmy Award-winning director, Mustapha Khan, imagining being confronted today with an ancestor who had lived his life in slavery, and being asked by this ancestor a poignant question: “What have you done with your freedom?”
Writer Trey Ellis calls Song For Our People: “A moving triumph! The exact movie America needs right now to piece together our collective soul.
The film won the Audience Award at the 2019 Awareness Film Festival and the 2019 Fine Arts Film Festival. It also won Best Music at the Doc Utah International Film Festival last year.
Song For Our People features: Omar Edwards, Jessie Wagner, Clark Gayton, Tashan, Ralph Rolle, Normie B, Elsa Cornish, Jeremy Pelt, Don Braden and Kenny Vaughan.
