Today’s podcast is co-hosted by musician, community organizer and KEXP DJ, Gabriel Teodros. It celebrates the music of Black artists, some of whom are on the frontlines of the protests against police brutality, calling for long overdue systemic change. 

We hear from Minneapolis musician, Nikki Jean, who’s been volunteering as a medic during the Minneapolis protests. She recounts seeing police fire rubber bullets and more into medic tents. 

Teodros then shares some songs that reflect on systemic racism and the police killings of black folks. 

Songs discussed:

“Hands Up” by Nikki Jean

“Greeny Jungle feat. Shakiah” by Gabriel Teodros & SoulChef

“Let Go” by D Smoke & SiR

“Say My Name” by Maimouna Youssef & DJ Dummy
