The Cole Williams Band
A portion of proceeds will benefit The Greater New Orleans Citizens Relief Team, in support of their efforts to renovate homes with the homeless. See link below.
Cole Williams, singer-songwriter-producer, recording artist, radio host on WWOZ 90.7 FM and key organizer, is leading this struggle with deep community participation and her powerful songs of freedom and struggle. Her new album with The Cole Williams Band (to be released in summer 2021), “Give Power To The People” puts her in the tradition of Gil Scott-Heron, creating songs that reflect the everyday experiences and hopes of displaced Black people all around the world. These songs are anthems of the Movement for Black Lives and certainly for people struggling to make sense out of this dangerous and hopeful moment.
Cole Williams Band’s new album “Give Power To The People” articulates their core organizing principles: go to the poorest people, create a shared plan for advancement, raise the spirits and awareness of our people, gain broad support and make it happen.” We see this as part of reparations to those most affected by historic institutional racism.
