Song of the Week

July 20, 2017

in 1994, Queen Latifah performed a song called UNITY which spoke out against the disrespect of women in society, addressing issues of street harassment, domestic violence, and slurs against women in hiphop culture. This call for us all to work together to stop this violence is still important. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twv4PP4QSPM

This 1969 song tempers optimism with reality. If you look hard enough you can find something redeeming in even the worst of situations.

Best words of wisdom from the song:

You can’t always get what you want

And if you try sometime, you find

You get what you need.
