She asked the organization to support the song “Stand Up” by Cynthia Erivo and to play and sing at future events.
“… I believe that black Americans need an actionable and empowering national anthem – one that motivates them to fight for their own freedoms and resort to helping other black Americans do the same,” Ms. Braswell said in her letter to them NAACP. “Stand Up” is the song from the 2019 film Harriet, which tells the story of the heroic abolitionist Harriet Tubman. This film grossed over $ 40 million at the domestic box office, a rarity for special biographical dramas. And 49% of that income came from blacks.
Ms. Braswell continued, “… in light of recent backlash and controversy about Vanessa Williams singing“ Lift Every Voice and Sing ”during the annual PBS special,“ A Capitol Fourth, ”and the NFL making it one of their major football shows for this season In the face of further backlash, I suggest that we give those who would oppose a united and stronger black community a substantial reason to agitate.
