watch Michael Kiwanuka’s new video for “Light”
Michael Kiwanuka has released a powerful, timely new video (made by Jeremy Ngatho Cole) for "Light" off last year's excellent KIWANUKA. He writes:
The way so much of the world has been designed has often caused me and so many other Black people psychological damage. We so often hear that we are lesser than because we are Black. We are a label, a token, a statistic, and we can be dehumanized. I've spoken about it in my music but I wanted to declare in words that I'm so proud to be Black. We are so beautiful and have such a wonderful history of strength, overcoming, talent, innovation, creativity, invention and love.
