There are (at least) two ways of approaching the compilation entitled Black Lives: From Generation to Generation, which presents Black music as a source of moral truth and potent weaponry against the scourge of racism. It was made by a collective of artists continuing to fight for equality and social justice through music. One of these perspectives is timely, ultra-literal and likely comprehensible to most; the other forms a less direct long-view, yet with a profound depth and reflection of the world. They present complementing views of contemporary life: a visceral reaction to the horrors of the era we currently populate, while illustrating the essential connections that the African diasporic tradition (often referred to as Great Black Music) makes between individuals, sounds, places and generations.
