Songs for Social Justice: Gary Byrd and the GB Experience – “The Crown” on Motown records

An 1980’s Motown rap with Gary Byrd featuring Stevie Wonder – this song for me celebrates diversity and inspires you to explore your roots even if the status quo view in school, society or the media tells you to look the other way and believe in the same old line. Musically it moves along with a skip and proves the point that celebrating, smiling and making a political and social point can all be done at the same time – a gem of a song.
