I thoroughly enjoyed this interview with award-winning composer, Omar Thomas, about his new album, ‘We Will Know’, a monumental work of art that breathes new life into the word “movement”. Inspired by the popular civil rights protest song, “We Shall Overcome”, Omar has just gifted the (U.S.) LGBT civil rights movement with their very own soundtrack, one which is sure to spark powerful conversations about what it means to exist at the intersection of struggle, triumph, and history, as both black and gay.
My brother wrote this guest post for me for Christmas and I couldn’t be any more moved. For any of you feeling hopeless about your families coming around, I want you to read this and see this as your future, see this as where your own family members could go. You will get there. They will get there. We will all find happiness :)
