The Juneteenth: Faith and Freedom documentary is out and along with every great film, is a dope soundtrack. We’ve been provided some information about the upcoming singles and the project as a whole.
Where Do We Go (6/24): Sho Baraka is known for his groundbreaking music, and he has done it again with his newest single “Where Do We Go.” The track, tells the story of the unique challenges that faced African Americans after Juneteenth and the end of slavery. Reflecting his unique ability to create spiritually rooted, socially conscious, hip hop with wordplay and hope, “Where Do We Go” will make your head nod, your heart hope, and your mind think. “Where Do We Go” is the first single from the Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom documentary available now on YouTube.
Black As Heaven (7/1): is a provocative anthem defiantly celebrating Blackness in a world dominated by white supremacy. Sho Baraka reclaims “blackness” from the often negative connotations it implies in Western culture and baptizes it into the biblical concept that Black people are the image of God (“imago dei”) and so their culture and skin tones are expressions of the divine. The Afrobeat-inspired hit includes a contribution from Zambian artist Magnus Mangdo which contributes to its Pan-African sound and vision. Black As Heaven is the second single from the Juneteenth Faith & Freedom film soundtrack.
Black Reconstruction (7/8): When Propaganda, Lecrae, and Sho Baraka team up on a track, the result is a profound and pulsating anthem, like their latest track: “Black Reconstruction.” Evoking W.E.B. DuBois’ literary masterpiece Black Reconstruction, this prophetic track calls out the need for social uplift and faith reconstruction in communities where the sins of white supremacy have resulted in many losing hope in the gospel. “Black Reconstruction” is the third and final single from the official soundtrack to the Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom film.
