Yasus Afari, Boom One Sound System, Dubsmith “Paint the White House Black” – September 15
This is a poetic take on the current affairs of the international community and more specifically the USA in relational to Africa and the African Diaspora.The unfortunate circumstances addressed by ‘Paint the White House Black’ are still very much in evidence, in spite of the fact and against the background of African contribution to humanity, civilization and the USA. These are coupled with the fact that the ‘White House’ is currently occupied by a Black Family, yet the social injustices read, business as usual. Hence, ‘Paint the While House Black’.
