America is in the midst of a massive social and political upheaval. In the wake of rising number of deaths due to police brutality, spoken word artist Philosophy, is sounding the alarm. The tree in the video symbolizes life and knowledge growing amidst the dead among us. It is also a reminder that we are ever evolving, as the limbs and branches extend so does our intellect and compassion towards tolerance.
Sound the Alarm is a poem from Philosophy’s forthcoming album entitled Heavy is the Crown.
