Introducing the Freedom Marching Project

To help honour Black History Month, Black Artists are coming together to help support Black, Indigenous & Racialized (BIR) communites. Award winning Black Carribbean-Canadian R&B/Soul singer Rufus John, the founder of the Freedom Marching Project, has recently released his EP The Freedom Marching Project in support of his initiative. The single, Freedom Marching (Part I), can be found HERE.

The Freedom Marching Project was created by Rufus John in response to the thousands of Black Lives Matter marchers and to honour and celebrate the community leaders and activists that are on the frontlines fighting daily and risking their lives for equality, access, diversity, participation and racial justice for Black, Indigenous & Racialized communities. London's own, Gary McAuley is producing the project and bringing voices from across the country together. The project uses the creative power of music and video to demonstrate the everyday pain, anguish and trauma experienced by Black, Indigenous & Racialized communities. Along with aiming to inspire those who want to do more and are willing to listen, learn and join the movement.

A Go Fund Me Page has been set up so people can donate throughout the month of February. All of the proceeds raised will be used to help educate against racism, oppression and discrimination and improve the lives of Black, Indigenous and Racialized communities. More information can be found on their website.
