"Letter to Lady J" was written in the name of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, and all the other innocent people killed by overly violent law enforcement.
The song starts off with the idea of a friend writing a letter to Lady Justice, asking her to please come out from her isolation and out into the streets where she is so badly needed.
Not only are people dying, but there is largely no accountability for this lethal action taken by the police. It makes us wonder, how far have we really come since the days of Dr. King’s marches when there is still racial profiling of this magnitude that results in the death of an innocent man or woman. It keeps happening. We've got to stand up, nonviolently come together, take pride in our differences, revel in our connection to each other, and fight for civil rights, for love, and justice for all.
