Fight Like Ida B + Marsha P

October 2, 2020

This song is bringing me so much joy and energy! Ric Wilson is a Chicago treasure and I’m grateful he was so dedicated to the movement that he made us this anthem. You gotta love a song with Ella Baker, Ida B. Wells and Marsha P. Johnson, but this song will also get you moving. +gratitude for the friend who put me on to this song when it came out because my ABOLISH print flashes up there for a sec. See how loud your speakers can go. Let’s be sure to love and protect each other as hard as we can.

the spoken word at the end is by Crista Noel:

I am the revolution
And the revolution don’t stop
I am change
Soon we will make a change that will change it all
I am courage
Courage to move the masses forward against those that will sit and stay and not move
I am movement
Moving all the place where we will be judged by content of our character and not the color of our skin
I am my skin
Color of my people who toiled the land of America and made it great
I am great
Great because I dedicate myself to change
I dedicate myself to my people
I dedicate myself to the movement
I dedicate myself to the revolution
And the revolution don’t stop
