Video: Common and Stevie Wonder Release Protest Song

By Jessica Wheeler, AliveTampaBay Columnist

Opening with the footage of the shooting of Alton Sterling by Baton Rouge police, the video for “Black America Again” seeks not only to remind the public of the cycle of violence against African Americans, but also to show the effect of such shootings on those left behind. As the title track to Common’s upcoming album, to be released later this year, it promises an artist taking a hard look at the state of our nation.
