Silence isn’t an option, if we stay silent we become part of the problem.
The news of the way in which George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery were killed has been deeply upsetting.
We all have a part to play in reflecting on our own roles in racism and Music Underground want to start a discussion with the music community on what we can do.
On the same matter, this article was published on the BBC news site
Music Underground want to hear your thoughts and ideas regarding racism and the music industry and we have put together some questions to focus the discussion.
What can musicians do to support the black lives matter cause?
There is a feeling that mainstream music used to have a political voice and that this no longer exists, do you agree and why do you think this is?
Has music with a political message been silenced?
Is there a lack of interest from listeners to subjects associated with political/social causes?
Does music have any power to bring about any social/political change?
We would be grateful to hear your thoughts which we have set up a form for on our DISCORD forum or on our Website Forum
