Artist Statement

This song was written by a new music group called the Post Gurlz who want to spread positivity due to the violence seen on TV targeted toward black people.

Our group was part of the Ubuntu Arts project last year, and we were deeply moved by its impact, so the girls wanted to participate and share their voice one more time for social justice.

They believe in a future with equal opportunity regardless of race, religion or social status. All lyrics and music is original and written by Post Gurlz.
