Black Women’s Art: ‘Freedom’

Since, we have come to the end of Black History Month and entering Women’s History Month, these versions of ‘Freedom’ are all about black female empowerment.

From the motion picture “Panther”, ‘Freedom’ a song that may have inspired Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ takes on the issues of black liberation and womanism through two different versions.

Lyrics like “Ladies, you got to demand what you want, and what we want is respect, right” are demanding that black women, who have always been left behind in civil rights, be heard and get the same respect as our counterparts.

Versions, rap and songstress, featuring various artists including: Queen Latifah, Yo-Yo, TLC, MC Lyte, Salt-N-Pepa, Aaliyah, and Mary J. Blidge.
