Chicago’s Jamila Woods releases her new LP, Legacy! Legacy! this Friday, 5/10. Check out the final advance single above, it is a banger. Love the horns.
“Baldwin” is a song inspired by the work of James Baldwin, particularly the “Letter To My Nephew” in his book The Fire Next Time. He had an incredible ability to speak about whiteness in a way that was hard-hitting and nuanced, and delivered some of the most elegant reads to white America, providing me a lens to think about how I see whiteness at work in my world today.
Be sure to follow her on Spotify and pre-save the new album.
