V V – “Sacrifice”
British songrstress V V Brown wrote an op-ed for The Guardian about the masks that black people have to wear in order to survive on a daily basis.
“As a black person you almost automatically learn to use this this mask in order to survive in a society predominantly catering to a white audience. It shows in different forms – from extremes of self-hate, where all things black are rejected, to coping strategies such as not wearing braids to a job interview in fear of being deemed “too ethnic”.”
The video for her latest release, “Sacrifice” as also inspired by her feelings.
