Journey to Forty Acres, and A Mule Named Melody

Description

This song grew out of an obsession with listening to Nina Simone sing old spirituals. Seeing “Roots” again, of course. And then somewhere along the way I saw Dave Chapelle’s skit on reparations. Ultimately something in all that prompted this, a strange bed of inspiration perhaps. The ultimate dream is to hear a choir sing this, could be interesting.
