  • Announcing the @prisonmusicproject Town Hall
July 18 at 5pm PDT / 8pm EDT
A live-streamed panel with a few of the creators on the @righteousbabe Facebook
A safe space to ask questions about the project
Moderated by @leylacello
Panelists: @anidifranco, @natedogg916, @zoeboekbinder
Guests calling from prison: Samual Brown, Bruce Dixon, and @spoonjackson

Submit questions by July 16th at 10am CDT here at the link in bio.
We will prioritize questions from people who have been impacted by incarceration.

The @prisonmusicproject is ten years in the making and, due to the content, we expect people to have opinions and feelings about it. In fact, we welcome it. We are responsible to the people whose stories we share with this work. The goal is to amplify the voices of incarcerated folks and, due to privilege and freedom, there are two white people (neither with any experience of incarceration longer than one night) at the helm of this project. While working intentionally to give power to our incarcerated collaborators, we know we have not done this flawlessly. We are accountable to communities impacted by incarceration and we are here to listen. We do not expect anyone’s emotional labor and we welcome and appreciate feedback.

At the core of this project is a belief that people are not defined by their mistakes. We believe in healing and harm-reduction instead of punishment.

  • For those of you missing live music as much as we are, we offer you some Little Folksinger Live in Keene, NH 11-16-19, out now on the @righteous_babes store and @bandcamp. Listen at the link in bio.

The last night of a tour usually finds Ani in rare form, and this solo show (with guesting from fellow righteous babes @gracieandrachel) is no exception. Ani is having a great time and it truly shows as she quickly deviates from the setlist and takes fans on a trip back to her first album with versions of Fire Door and Both Hands. Showing some love to Bon Iver, Ani covers the tracks Skinny Love and Salem. The latter of the two showcases Ani’s vocal abilities while she seamlessly weaves from Salem into The Slant and back again. A real highlight of the night

@gracieandrachel join the stage for several songs, including amazing versions of Grey, Play God, and Albacore. Extending the set even further, Ani goes off-script once again and adds the always slammin’ Shameless to close the set. Gracie and Rachel join Ani once again for the double encore of 32 Flavors and a truly beautiful version of Joyful Girl that sends everyone floating out of the Colonial Theatre on cloud nine, or maybe it was cloud ten...

  • “Until the killing of black men, black mothers’ sons, is as important as the killing of white men, white mothers’ sons, we who believe in freedom cannot rest.”
.
.
Today, #Juneteenth, the @resistancerevivalchorus released “Ella’s Song,” a cover originally sung by @sweethoneyrocks73 written by Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon, with an arrangement from @toshireagon and @meadowbrown74. We are sharing this music video to urge you to keep your foot on the gas in this crucial moment — because we who believe in freedom cannot rest until it comes. 100% of all proceeds from this song go to @mvmnt4blklives.
.
.
Right now, "Ella's Song" is available from @Bandcamp (which is donating their cut of sales today to the @naacp_ldf) and the @righteousbabe Store. The recording will be available on all digital music services on July 2nd through Righteous Babe Records.

  • Love is not soft, it is fierce and unrelenting. @ValarieKaur’s new book #SeeNoStranger invites us to #ReclaimLove: “We mostly talk about love as a flood of emotion. But feelings alone are too fickle and fluid to sustain political action. Social reformers through history led entire nonviolent movements anchored in love as an ethic. Time and again, people gave their bodies and breath for one another, not only in the face of fire hoses and firing squads, but also in the quieter venues of their daily lives. Black feminists like bell hooks have long envisioned a world where the love ethic is a foundation for all arenas of our society. I believe we can reclaim love as a force for justice for a new time.” Order now at SeeNoStranger.com.

  • This song "Breakthrough" by Abraham Banks featuring @aranesa Turner is from the album Long Time Gone by the @prisonmusicproject (@righteousbabe Records), a collective of artists in and outside of prison. All the words on this album were written by people who are (or were) incarcerated, like Abraham Banks.

Footage from inside New Folsom Prison is borrowed from a documentary, At Night I Fly, by Michel Wenzer.

All other footage shot by @alixangelis. Editing by Alix Angelis and Jim Hicks.

Watch the full video, hear the album, and tune in to the Prison Music Project Sessions: Long Time Gone Album Concert 6/12 at the links in bio.

We stand in solidarity with the protests to end police violence against Black bodies and to abolish the systemic racism which oppresses Black freedom.

We have heard the call to de-center white voices at this important moment for the Black Lives Matter movement. We will be postponing the Prison Music Project Sessions: Long Time Gone Album Concert to June 12. All previous ticket purchases will be honored and work for the new date. This week we will use our social media platforms to amplify the work of our Black incarcerated and formerly incarcerated @prisonmusicproject collaborators.

We would also like to offer up the Righteous Babe Radio platform to people of color who may want to use it. This is an open invitation to our Black and brown siblings to send us recorded thoughts, feelings, music, poetry, statements, experiences, and reflections to be broadcast as part of our "heavy rotation" playlist. Send MP3 submissions to radio@righteousbabe.com.

Prison Prism, our radio festival dedicated to discussions about our criminal justice system, will be extended through June 12.

Please extend your anti-racist action beyond just posting on social media. Head to the link in bio for a guide for more actions written by Zyahna Bryant. 
White allies, it is important we educate ourselves rather than ask Black people for their emotional labor. If there are additional resources you have found helpful, please feel free to share them with each other in the comments.

Thank you to all those fighting for justice and equality.

Black Lives Matter.
