AN UNREQUITED LOVE LETTER FROM A BLACK MAN TO AMERICA
FRIDAY JUNE 14TH
See the "Making Of" Video <---- here
Nearly ten years ago, InnissENT, wrote a breakup song. An ode to lost love, “The Answer” sat on the shelf for years, waiting for the right time to be released. When the Black Lives Matter movement rocketed into mainstream culture earlier this year, the pair knew the time was finally right.
Today, their personal love song is about something much larger: the unrequited love of Black Americans for their country. In collaboration with award-winning choreographer Kristen Brooks Sandler, InnissENT created a socially distanced music video spotlighting 7 dancers of color, with movement inspired by activism: Sign, Donate, Protest, Petition.
