Songs for The Movement: “Hell Y’all Ain’t Talmbout”
The Songs for the Movement section of N.A.H. houses selected protest songs for social justice from the past and the present.
I’m trying to build a list here, and will update this category periodically, but feel free to share any suggestions you may have in the comments or via email.
Today’s entry in Songs for the Movement is “Hell Y’all Ain’t Talmbout” by Vita Elizabeth Cleveland with the message:
“This track is in response to the initial recording of “Hell You Talmbout” by Janelle Monae. The track, albeit powerful, once again proved to the world that even within the minds and spirits of black people, our black trans siblings are left behind, even in death. This track is a call to those that have forgotten us, as well as a chance to lift of my fallen black trans symbols, who should have been lifted up in the first place.”
Names mentioned in the Song are Below:
From Aspiring Humanitarian, Relando Thompkins-Jones, MSW, LLMSW
